An Evening of Hope and Discovery

October 17, 2019 6:00 PM-8:00 PM

Stonehurst, Waltham MA


We celebrated our sixth annual Evening of Hope and Discovery on Thursday, October 17, 2019 at Stonehurst, the Robert Treat Paine Estate. Through ticket sales, donations, and our auction, the evening raised funds to support our programs for teens and families. We thank the many sponsors, volunteers, and board members that made the evening a success.
