In Events

On Monday, May 13th, we hosted our 8th Annual Cooking Live Boston. Taking place at the Ritz-Carlton, the evening was filled with delicious food, inspiring moments and kindness.

Our generous supporters, talented chefs, cancer-heroes and sponsors made this event truly impactful. Together, we raised a record-breaking $540,000! These funds directly support patients and their families facing the financial burden of cancer.

At Family Reach, we are dedicated to not only eradicating the financial burden of cancer, but offering solutions to avoid them in the first place. Through collaboration, partnerships and innovation, our mission is shifting the conversation today and making a tangible impact for tomorrow.

The night began with our feature families spending time with chefs Joanne Chang, Ming Tsai, Tony Messina, Ken Oringer, Tiffani Faison, Dee Steffen Chinn and Kerry Levesque
