The Gold Ribbon Reception is our major event of the year.
This is a semi formal night held at the Courtyard Marriot in Marlborough MA, that provides an extraordinary dinner, special guests, entertainment, an array of theme baskets at our silent auction; balloon pops- doors prizes, music by DJ Ray Richard, bone marrow drive, and much more!
This event is in honor and memory of all our families that we have helped and gets us ready for future families that we can help!
Since 2002, a total of 47 families from all over Massachusetts; Sutton, Charlton, Upton, Milford, Holliston, Hopkinton, Worcester, Oxford, Hudson, West Boylston, Boylston, Sudbury, Lynn, Boston, Stoughton, Natick, Springfield, Ware, Orange, Leominster, Lancaster, Lunenburg, Gardner, Fitchburg, Salem, Plymouth, Attleboro, and more. From one side of MA to the other and lots in between. Cancer doesn’t care where you live, so we are there to help!
As a local business owner or member of the community please become a valued sponsor and help us help families who have a child going to go through the Bone Marrow Transplant process.
You will be sponsoring an established fundraiser that supports a family by directly paying the family’s creditors; we pay mortgage/rent payments for up to 12 months. We are the only organization in the U.S. to do so! We allow families that are going through overwhelming stress to focus 100% on what is important, their child!
