Boston Children’s Hospital’s Milagros para Niños Gala

Check out scenes from the September 14, 2018, event at the Westin Waterfront Hotel.

On September 14, more than 500 Latino business leaders and hospital supporters came together to share the story of Boston Children’s Hospital for the annual Milagros para Niños Gala. The event included dinner, dancing, and donating—proving the power of community, and raised more than $500,000. The funds raised will ensure Latino children can access Boston Children’s lifesaving care locally and globally.
