On November 3, 2011, 130 people gathered at the Lenox Hotel in Boston for Latin Nights to celebrate and raised close to $100,000 for Operation Walk Boston at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Guests were treated to great food and sangria while entertained by La Timbistica and salsa dancers from the Author Murray Dance Studio and a small silent auction with items such as Bruins tickets and a signed football by New England Patriots Alumni, Steve Grogan.

Operation Walk Boston was established in 2007 through the Department of Orthopedics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the mission is to improve the quality of life for needy patients through direct orthopedic surgical care and education of local health care providers.

Hundreds of deserving patients in the Dominican Republic have been given a new lease on life from the work of the BWH medical personnel and countless volunteers. To those patients, the work of the Operation Walk Boston team is priceless.
