Signature Events

The Development Office hosts several events every year. Many offer volunteer and sponsorship opportunities—all directly support the mission of our academic health sciences center to improve the health and well-being of the people in the commonwealth and the world through pioneering advances in education, research and health care delivery. 

PINK – Lighting the Way...

Held annually in October in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Pink – Lighting the Way... is an event where we celebrate the lives of those touched by breast cancer. Guests are invited to honor or memorialize a friend or loved one by the lighting of votives and pillar candles. It is also an opportunity to hear from UMass physicians about the potential of the research under way at UMass and the exciting advances in care for those affected by breast cancer. Learn more…

Tee Up for Tots Golf Tournament

Each year in August, we host the Tee Up for Tots Golf Tournament to support the UMass Memorial Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, which was founded in 1974. Each year we draw a crowd of grateful patients, individuals and corporations who embrace the mission of the NICU and all that it offers to the critically ill infants and their families of Central Massachusetts. Even if golf is not your game, friends of the NICU enjoy a fun evening with a wonderful dinner, fabulous silent and live auctions, raffles and more. Learn more….

To date, the five-mile walk-a-thon has raised more than $6 million, enabling cutting edge cancer research to bring us one step closer to finding a cure. Step forward and learn more…

In 2009, we launched the inaugural Winter Ball, the first joint fundraising event of its magnitude for the UMass Medical School and UMass Memorial Medical Center. Now in its fourth year, this black-tie event has become the premiere opportunity for members of the community to come together to embrace our collective mission to serve the people of Massachusetts and beyond.
