Submit your event/s here. Note that we limit event listings mainly to free or inexpensive public events in Wellesley, such as talks, films, theatre productions, concerts, etc. This is not a place for businesses to promote themselves, their classes, etc. Please don’t submit events that run for weeks and weeks. We approve event listings before they go live, typically within 24 hours.
No business sales, trunk shows, etc. (those would be paid advertisements). Please go easy on the ALL CAPS, exclamation points!!!!, etc.
We also appreciate any contributions to support our independent journalism venture.
Thanks, Deborah & Bob

Newton-Wellesley Hospital Virtual Hope Walks
October 4, 2020Free – $20
Hope Walks is a community walk that brings together patients, families, friends and cancer center staff to raise funds for the Mass General Cancer Center at Newton-Wellesley.
Given the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and our commitment to protecting the health of our community members and walk participants, we have made the difficult decision to move this year’s Hope Walks — scheduled for October 4, 2020 — to a fully virtual event.
While we won’t be walking side-by-side this year, we will still be walking together. Now more than ever, we need your support to raise funds for the Mass General Cancer Center at Newton-Wellesley. Your participation will help us continue to offer a range of programs and integrative support services including massage, reiki, psychosocial counseling and more to patients with a cancer diagnosis. Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $100,000!
On October 4, walk around your neighborhood, go to the park, walk your dog, head to the beach or hop on the treadmill. We are encouraging walkers to walk two miles, but choose what feels right to you! Just be sure to do it safely and follow social distancing guidelines.
