Senseation Gala 2016 14

A Sense-ational Time

Mass. Eye and Ear transforms lives every day through its renowned research programs and extraordinary physicians and staff who provide the finest care available anywhere. Here families find compassionate care from clinician-scientists who also work tirelessly to develop new treatments and find cures for diseases and conditions that affect sight, hearing, speech, breathing – and even ability to smile.

The Mass. Eye and Ear Sense-ation! Gala was founded in 2010 under the leadership of Wyc Grousbeck to seed new research and fund innovative advancements in care through the Curing Kids Fund. In just seven years, your generous support of the Sense-ation! Gala has helped to raise more than $9 million to:

  • Advance 34 exciting new initiatives in vision and hearing research.
  • Give dozens of children-in-need the simple, but life-changing gift of eyeglasses and hearing aids.
  • Support more than 100 life-saving reconstructive airway and ear surgeries for children at home and around the world.
  • There’s more to do. Much more. The dedication of our physicians and researchers has brought us to a defining moment when cures are finally within reach. Our promise is that every child will see and hear throughout her lifetime.
  • Establish a Mass. Eye and Ear Curing Kids Endowment to help ensure transformative research and care for years to come.
