Marshfield native Jonathan Hall, the Emmy award winning journalist and investigative reporter for WHDH Channel 7 News Boston will be the Master of Ceremonies at the Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield’s “An Evening of Stars” Gala and Auction on March 7, 2009 at the Indian Pond Country Club in Kingston.
Hall’s career began in Boston at WEEI Newsradio 590 as an executive editor and producer for which he won the Associated Press Award for WEEI Evening Review. He went on to become a writer for Newscenter 5 broadcasts and an Associate Producer for WCVB-TV Boston and then moved on to WMTW in Portland, ME and KMOV in St. Louis, MO before returning to Boston.
The Boys and Girls Club’s dazzling Gala and Auction will celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield and also serve as a major fundraiser. Approximately 350 people are expected to attend.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to have Jonathan Hall, who is extremely talented and who grew up in Marshfield, emcee our event,” noted Greg Jackson, Executive Director of the club.
During the evening, the club will honor former State Representative Frank Hynes and his wife Heather for their support of and dedication to the Boys and Girls Club and families in the area. The “Youth of the Year” will be announced and presented with a scholarship. Guests will enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, entertainment and a silent and live auction.
More than $40,000 was raised in support of programs for more than 4,000 youths in the area at last year’s Gala and Auction.
