On Saturday November 10, 2012 over 300 guests celebrated the Julie Fund for Women’s Cancer 8th annual gala to raise funds for targeted cancer research and to help women and their families affected by cancer.  This year the event was held at Fenway Park and attendees were treated to a festive Casino Night which included casino games, dinner, dancing and a live auction.
