The 28th Annual Evening at POPS took place on Friday, May 9th at Symphony Hall in Boston raising over $77,000 for the High Hopes Fund. Over 200 guests gathered for a pre-concert reception as we honored the legacy of Frank and Jean Ring by renaming the honorary award at POPS to the Frank and Jean Ring Memorial Award in the Fight Against Diabetes. In addition, Laurie Bejoian was awarded her 50 year medal at the event. Following the reception, guests attended The Very Best of POPS in celebration of the Boston Pops and Keith Lockhart.
