Join us for a magical night by the USS Constitution in the historic Charlestown Navy Yard for the largest benefit gala in New England to help heal the Invisible Wounds for Veterans and their Families on Thursday, September 27, 2018.

For the past five years, Home Base’s Mission: Gratitude has brought in millions of dollars to help heal the invisible wounds of war for Veterans and their Families. The memorable evening has featured iconic performers such as Reba McEntire, Harry Connick Jr., the Beach Boys, and most recently, Kristin Chenoweth in 2017.

The evening is an opportunity for those in the New England business, civic and philanthropic leadership communities to stand together in recognition of the sacrifices made daily by those who have served in uniform and their families. Seats are provided to members of our military and their families at no cost.

If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses… think again. Straight No Chaser (SNC) are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fan-base, numerous national TV appearances and proven success with CD releases. Straight No Chaser is the real deal, the captivating sound of nine unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense… and with a sense of humor. On the road, Straight No Chaser has built a reputation as an unforgettable live act.
