Check out scenes from the October 17, 2020 virtual event.


MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC) held its Storybook Ball virtually on October 17th, bringing the event’s signature fun, storytelling and special moments into living rooms and raising over $1.5 million to continue the extraordinary family-centered work of the hospital. Co-chaired by Andrea and Justin Rosen and Fiona and James Benenson III, the signature philanthropic event saluted the MGHfC essential workers who provided critical pediatric and adult care during the COVID-19 crisis. Longtime partner Rafanelli Events creatively transformed the classic children’s tale “Rainbow Fish” to the screen, as logged-on guests were entertained with carnival booth games, a special visit and performance by James Taylor, and auction. In these unprecedented times, MGHfC is extremely grateful for this year’s generous support and the chance for donors and friends to connect through the power of Storybook Ball, a favorite of the community for over twenty years.
