The Hundred Club Holiday Party 2022


The Hundred Club Holiday Party was held in person on December 11 for the first time since 2019. It was a wonderful event filled with activities from Santa and the Grinch, caricature artists, balloon animals and so more. A special performance by the Boston Children’s Choir was a wonderful addition to the party. The event also gave the families the opportunity to reconnect with the each other. Kegi Fontanez was the keynote speaker who shared her gratitude for the Hundred Club since her husband Boston Police officer Jose Fontanez died from Covid-19 in 2020. Nearly 200 beneficiaries and their families attended the event.
