Special to the Regional Review
More than 250 guests recently gathered to support Boston Senior Home Care and to honor highly respected community leaders at the organization’s annual fundraiser held at the Mandarin Oriental Boston. Honored were the Honorable Aaron Michlewitz, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Catherine Dunham, Senior Advisor at the Preservation of Affordable Housing. Rep. Michlewitz was recognized for his tireless advocacy for the needs of working families, advocating for services to support seniors in his district and across the state and his leadership in ensuring quality and affordable healthcare for all residents. Ms. Dunham was acknowledged for her dedication to the expansion of affordable housing for low-income individuals and families in Boston and for her work as president of The Access Project, a research and advocacy organization that strives to improve healthcare for people without adequate health insurance.
“As friends and supporters of our work, Chairman Michlewitz and Catherine Dunham enable Boston Senior Home Care to continue to provide the services and support that low-income seniors and people with disabilities need to remain safe and secure in their own community,” said Meg Hogan, CEO of Boston Senior Home Care. “Both shared examples of their connection to our agency and the important services we provide, which illustrated the critical work we do.”
Hosted by former Emmy-award winning news anchor and consumer reporter Susan Wornick, the event met the goal of raising $220,000 to support programs and services that benefit low-income elders and people with disabilities in Boston-area communities served by Boston Senior Home Care.
Boston Senior Home Care is very grateful to its Premium sponsor, Emily’s Food Service Inc., and its three Gold sponsors, Citizens Bank, Midtown Home Health Services, Inc., and Medical Resources Home Health, for supporting the event.
