/ about

For twenty-five years a dedicated group of individuals hosted an amazing event in our community.  The event, originally known as the Omar T. Pace Gala, became The Evening of Hope Gala and over the years it raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support American Cancer Society
services in Western Massachusetts and beyond. 

In 2021, ACS will begin a new, distinguished event tradition, rising from the legacy of the great work done by the incredible supporters of the gala. 

We are excited to share An Evening of Spirits- a celebration of hope.
