Every year, Victory Programs Boston Living Center hosts the Celebration of Life event which honors Boston community members living with HIV/AIDS.  This year, the event featured a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner, live entertainment and a Resource Fair with more than 30 community partners.

 

Volunteers and in kind supporters helped with everything from the centerpieces to registration.  Ragon Institute members volunteered to not only serve the Thanksgiving meal, but each volunteer pledged to raise $300 to support the work of the Boston Living Center.
