It has been quite a year! Riverside has transformed and expanded our behavioral health and family services to meet the needs of thousands of children and families in the Cambridge and Somerville area who depend on us. We couldn’t have done it without you!

It’s clear that the need for our services is growing as the emotional toll of the pandemic comes into focus. But you give us – and our community – hope.

The beautiful banner image for the event, designed by Gala Committee member Mary O’Reilly, portrays this hope – and the connections we maintain and strengthen even while physically apart. Through your generosity, Riverside will remain strong to serve children, families, and adults far into the future!

For more information about the event and how to become a sponsor, please contact us at or 781-320-5356.

*Special dessert delivery before the event available to individual sponsors and those who purchase tickets by April 16 and who are residents of Cambridge, Somerville, or neighboring cities and towns.

Thank you to our wonderful Sponsors!
