Kelley for Ellie at the Boston Harbor Hotel
The Ellie Fund held its second annual Kelley for Ellie benefit at the five star Boston Harbor Hotel
Thursday night. Hosted by you guessed it, Channel 5's own Kelley Tuthill, The Ellie Fund
raised money needed to continue their growing organization which aids breast cancer patients and their caregivers throughout Massachusetts. Incase you didn't know, Kelley Tuthill publicly battled cancer herself last year as she bravely allowed Channel 5 to tell her story through a series of video diaries.
The room was magnificently put together, lit with bright colors and arranged around a center runway.
The Boston Harbor Hotel overlooks, well, the Boston Harbor!
