At the last Benefit Breakfast...

On November 7th, 2017, nearly 1,000 health care professionals and advocates convened at the Sheraton Boston Hotel for HLA's 22nd Benefit Breakfast.

The brisk morning did not deter an early crowd that trickled in at 7:00am. Soon, the foyer was filled with familiar faces and new additions. At 8:00, the program began with Matt Selig, HLA's Executive Director, who spoke of the importance of our immigrant health care access initiative (read more about that effort here), followed by a video on our work with the Kunta family, who emigrated from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Staff Attorney Andrew Cohen was able to enroll the Kuntas in a health care plan that covered their daughter's hearing device.

The Breakfast Co-Chairs, Susan Coakley and Larry Vernaglia, whose dedication and generosity of time and energy was instrumental in making this Breakfast a success, spoke of the importance of continuing the fight for health care justice. We heard from Ivan Victoriano Fontes, a young man who needed a kidney transplant and came to HLA for help. HLA's Board Director, Mala Rafik, drove it home -- it is our duty to advocate for the health of the immigrant community. 

And finally, we were thrilled to have The Capitol Steps as the featured act, who left the room in stitches from their hilarious and brilliant performance.
