BOSTON – Sports legends will gather and celebrate aging at Hebrew SeniorLife’s signature event, EngAGE 2019, at Fenway Park on Wednesday, November 13.
The all-star lineup includes Jim Lonborg, Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer, and later, dentist; Chris Evert, retired World #1 American tennis legend, coach, analyst, and commentator; Sugar Ray Leonard, boxing icon, Olympic Gold medalist, philanthropist, and best-selling author; and Sean McDonough, ESPN and Boston Red Sox broadcaster.
Boston-based Hebrew SeniorLife (HSL), an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, is a national senior services leader uniquely dedicated to rethinking, researching, and redefining the possibilities of aging. HSL has hosted the successful EngAGE forum for six years. In announcing the EngAGE 2019 lineup, Lou Woolf, HSL President and CEO, said, “Boston is an incredible sports town as well as a wonderful community to celebrate aging. In fact, the same year the Red Sox won the very first World Series in 1903, HSL began taking care of older adults in its first location in Dorchester.
“We are honored to have these sports icons celebrate aging with HSL at historic Fenway Park. Time and time again, they have re-imagined their wheelhouse to serve their passions. We look forward to hearing their stories and plans for the future.”
Tickets are selling quickly for EngAGE 2019, which features a mixed-media program, a panel, and intimate dinner parties. All proceeds power Hebrew SeniorLife’s health care, communities, research, and teaching that transform the experience of aging. Last year’s event raised $1.3 million.
The chairs for EngAGE 2019 are Jennifer and Jeffrey Drucker and Hinda and Arthur Marcus, all of Chestnut Hill (MA). For more information about EngAGE, visit www.hslengage.org.
