The American Cancer Society’s AstraZeneca Hope Lodge in Boston serves as a “home away from home” for patients traveling more than 40 miles to their outpatient treatments. There is no charge to stay at the Hope Lodge, for either the patient or his or her caregivers. The lodge provides approximately 14,000 nights of free lodging to cancer patients every year. A typical guest spends six weeks at the Lodge, saving them more than 7,000.

It will be a great night for a great cause, especially if you like to dance!
