For the past four years, Home Base’s Mission: Gratitude has brought in millions of dollars to help heal the invisible wounds of war for Veterans and their Families. As the largest benefit concert in New England, Mission: Gratitude is one of Home Base’s cornerstone events. The memorable evening has featured iconic performers such as Reba McEntire, Harry Connick Jr., and most recently, the Beach Boys.

The evening is an opportunity for those in the Boston business, civic and philanthropic leadership communities to stand together in recognition of the sacrifices made daily by those who have served in uniform and their families. Seats are provided to members of our military and their families at no cost.

Mission: Gratitude is chaired by Jack Connors, Jr. (founding partner and chairman emeritus, Hill Holliday Connors Cosmopulos); David Ginsberg (vice chairman, Fenway Sports Group); Peter Slavin, MD (president, Mass General Hospital); and Tom Werner (chairman, Boston Red Sox and Red Sox Foundation).

Thanks to generous contributions from partners, collaborators, friends, volunteers and staff, Home Base raised more than $1M for Veterans and Service Members suffering from invisible wounds in 2016.
