Diamonds of Dorchester

Wednesday, October 18, 2017
The Westin Copley Place, Boston
5:30 p.m.

Our 14th Annual Diamonds of Dorchester gala will be held on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at The Westin Copley Place, Boston. This year we will honor Rev. Liz Walker with the John M. Corcoran Award for Excellence in recognition for her extensive humanitarian work including her leadership as Pastor of the Roxbury Presbyterian Church, her advocacy in the Sudan with My Sister’s Keeper, and her support of survivors of violence and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Last year was an incredible evening where Lorrie Higgins was honored, and Ms. Higgins along with Cardinal O’Malley, Gov. Baker, and Mayor Walsh all spoke about the need for support of programs and services for families seeking shelter, stability, and life-changing opportunities. We hope you will consider supporting the event on October 18, so that more families may find that change comes from the Center. 

Proceeds from the event will go to St. Mary’s Center, an independent 501 (c) 3 organization.
