Check out scenes from the May 3, 2018, event The Warehouse at Black Falcon Terminal.


On May 3, 2018, The Warehouse at Black Falcon Terminal in Boston was transformed into a fantastical celebration of cancer survivorship. The 13th annual celebration honored Linda and Jay Hooley for their commitment to the Hope Lodge center in the Jamaica Plain, a state-of-the-art facility which provides free lodging for cancer patients and caregivers traveling more than 40 miles to their treatments. The event raised over $900,000 as guests enjoyed an exciting night of live and silent auctions, passed appetizers and a plated dinner, dancing, and more. Presenting Sponsor State Street Corporation supported videos that illustrated the home-away-from-home atmosphere of the Hope Lodge.
