2012 Housewarming Event

We are proud to announce that our annual Housewarming Event raised over $700,000 to support our programs to end family homelessness. The Housewarming Event, held May 3rd at The State Room in Boston, is our largest fundraiser of the year. The event brought together Greater Boston’s finest chefs and restaurants with local business leaders and philanthropists for an evening of networking and fundraising to benefit Heading Home. Eighteen restaurants participated in the sold-out event, offering tastings of their signature dishes for over 700 attendees to enjoy.

This year, Brian Kavoogian of Charles River Realty Investors and Jack Sebastian of Goldman, Sachs & Co. chaired the Housewarming Event, and Andrew Maher of Equity Office served as master of ceremonies. With their passion for the cause of ending homelessness in Greater Boston, Heading Home surpassed its goal and raised more than $700,000.
