Intercontinental Hotel Boston
• 510 Atlantic Avenue
Our 2020 Magic Ball Boston will be held at the incredible Intercontinental Boston Hotel on Saturday, April 25. We are grateful to the nearly 200 attendees at our 2019 Magic Ball Boston event. They - and our generous sponsors - donated over $225,000 to Kesem's mission of supporting children impacted by a parent's cancer.
You will never forget your evening at the Magic Ball. One of Boston’s most memorable charity events, the Magic Ball Boston will be a unique blend of fun, magic, surprise, fantastic food and entertainment – all supporting an unparalleled charity organization which provides support to children impacted by a parent’s cancer.
The event, to be held at the Intercontinental Boston Hotel, will bring hundreds of Boston luminaries together for an evening of philanthropy, discovery and fun. Complete with hands-on experiences, dinner, live auction and dancing, the Magic Ball will inspire you to support this often-overlooked population of children.
All proceeds benefit Camp Kesem and their nationwide network of free summer camps (including New England camps run by MIT, Harvard Undergraduate, Chestnut Hill, Brown, Boston University, Dartmouth, and University of Vermont, University of Maine, and Yale), ensuring the organization’s ability to support more of the 5+ million children who have a parent with cancer, or who have lost a parent to cancer.
