 South Shore Health’s Moonlight & Miracles Gala will celebrate 20 years of community support on Friday, October 21 at Union Point in Weymouth, Mass.

Beneath autumn stars and a white billowing tent, this spectacular South Shore event will once again – deliver a magical and exceptional evening that makes the Moonlight and Miracles Gala so unique.

“This year’s gala is extra special as we celebrate 20 years of unwavering community support for South Shore Health,” said Angela Floro, Director of Special Events and Annual Giving for South Shore Health’s Foundation. “It’s a milestone worth reflecting on the tremendous impact our donors, families and friends have made in helping South Shore Health continue its mission to deliver world-class care and resources to our patients close-to-home.”

Beginning at 6:00 p.m., guests will enjoy cocktails, hors d'oeuvre’s, food stations and dessert, followed by a short program emceed by radio and TV personality, Billy Costa. Attendees can dance the night away with music by the upbeat and lively band, Hot Mess. The exquisite and chic affair will feature a live and silent digital auction, where guests may bid on one-of-a-kind items and experiences – such as weekend escapes and ultimate sports fan packages.

Funds raised from the Gala will help integrate substance use disorder (SUD) and behavioral health services and initiatives within the Grayken Center for Treatment at South Shore Health, a critical resource on the South Shore. Driven by a magnanimous $10 million grant given by John and Eilene Grayken of Cohasset, the Grayken Center has enabled South Shore Health to:

  • Integrate Behavioral Health clinicians in its ambulatory sites 
  • Establish a rapid care treatment location for people with SUD
  • Launch a Mobile Integrated Health program, which allows South Shore Health to bring hospital care into the community, combining telehealth technology with skilled clinicians who provide care within a patient’s home.

The Grayken Center also supports South Shore Health’s collaboration with Aspire Health Alliance and supports South Shore Health’s strong relationship with the Office Based Addiction Treatment program at Boston Medical Center.

“So many people are touched by substance use disorders and behavioral health challenges, and too few receive the care they deserve,” said Todd Kerensky, MD, Director of Addiction Medicine at South Shore Health. “We are extremely grateful to those in our community who are willing to help us support patients and families faced with these challenges, while ensuring that treatment is accessible to anyone who needs it.”
