Boston Park Plaza

David Ortiz Children’s Fund Gala

The David Ortiz Children's Fund Gala, the DOCF's annual Boston event, is proudly heading into its fourth year on July 18th, 2016. Each year, David Ortiz brings a taste of the Dominican Republic to New England for a great cause. The event features an authentic Dominican-inspired menu, along with traditional music and dancing. In its first three years, the Gala has netted over $500,000 for the David Ortiz Children’s Fund, in partnership with Massachusetts General Hospital for Children and World Pediatric Project, to provide critical pediatric care throughout New England and in the Dominican Republic. Money raised at this event will support the DOCF’s various initiatives throughout 2016. This includes detecting congenital heart disease prior to birth, evaluating patients from rural areas in the DR without access to echocardiography and providing heart surgeries and post-surgery care to children in need.
