This past Saturday night, I attended the Roxbury Comprehensive Community Health Center (RoxComp) Gala at the Boston Four Seasons. RoxComp is a leading provider of primary healthcare and outpatient mental and social health services in Roxbury and North Dorchester, and provides these services to individuals regardless of ability to pay. The event featured a lovely dine around dinner prepared by the Four Seasons Executive Chef Brooke Vosika (who first wowed me with his dishes at the Tour de Champagne), a silent and live auction, and an intimate live performance by Oscar / Grammy award winner Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls, Sex and the City, The Secret Life of Bees) to cap off the night.

 The illustrious crowd included supporters from Next Street Financial, Color Magazine, Roxbury Technologies, ELAN & ADRIANA SASSOON from MIZU Salon, Children’s Hospital Boston, numerous press people (myself included!), and Governor Deval Partick.

Before the Jennifer Hudson performance, there were words spoken by Emcee Karen Holmes Ward, RoxComp CEO Anita Crawford, and RoxComp Chairman Ronald Walker II. There was also an intense live auction where bidding wars escalated as charitable event patrons dug deep in their pockets to bid on Chicago getaway packages, VIP packages at the Four Seasons, and $10,000 donations to RoxComp.
