Wellesley fundraisers & charity events

Wellesley businesses, organizations and individuals are endlessly generous, offering fundraisers throughout the year to support charities. Here are the latest:


Sept 28, 9am-noonish: Newton-Wellesley Hospital Charitable Foundation’s fifth annual HopeWalks event

The Newton-Wellesley Hospital Charitable Foundation has announced that its fifth annual HopeWalks event will be held on Sunday, September 28, 2014. HopeWalks is a 3.5 mile neighborhood walk to benefit cancer patients and their families by supporting the Integrative Support Services offered at the Vernon Cancer Center. These life-enhancing services for cancer patients optimize healing and comfort throughout treatment. Newton-Wellesley Hospital wants to continue making these services available to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay. Online registration is now open at www.nwh.org/hopewalks.

The HopeWalks route will begin and end at the hospital, and all ages are welcome. Check-in will begin at 9:00 AM, with opening ceremonies starting at 9:30 AM. The walk will then set-off at 10:00 AM. There will be a hospitality tent, entertainment, food, and prizes. HopeWalks is a fundraiser, and while there is no minimum donation amount required to participate, it is recommended that each walker raise a minimum of $100.

The online registration fee is $25 per walker. For those who register by paper or on the day of the event, the registration fee is $35. Children 10 and under are free. Online registration is now available at www.nwh.org/hopewalks.



Wellesley Service League Annual Toy Drive:   Now is great time to clean out those toys your kids have outgrown or aren’t playing with anymore and donate them to the Toy Drive. We accept new and nearly new toys, books and sporting equipment. And if you don’t have toys to donate but would like to give, we also accept donations that go toward gift cards for older age kids. Look for the Wellesley Service League toy collection boxes during September & October at all the Wellesley schools and at the Wellesley Free Library. If you have any questions please contact [email protected]


Corporate sponsorships at all levels are still available. For more information, please contact Maryann Zschau at (617) 243-5915 or [email protected]
