Extraordinary times offer us an extraordinary opportunity to celebrate the heart of Nantucket. After careful consideration and with public health as our top priority, Nantucket Cottage Hospital has made the decision that we will not be able to gather on Jetties Beach for the 2020 Boston Pops on Nantucket as originally planned this August due to the precautions like physical distancing that are imperative to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
We are planning a virtual celebration – the Boston Pops for Nantucket – as a way to celebrate our hospital, our brave healthcare workers, first responders, essential workers and the entire Nantucket community.
Event details will be announced soon and we will bring our community and the hospital’s steadfast supporters together virtually, in a way that complies with the best practices we have learned for keeping our island healthy.
Your support of the Boston Pops for Nantucket is needed now more than ever. It will allow our hospital staff to continue to care for our community during the global coronavirus pandemic and to ensure our island emerges from this crisis stronger than ever. Your support, in any capacity, is appreciated.
We express our gratitude to our many underwriters, including our presenting sponsors, Jill and Stephen Karp and White Elephant Resorts, as well as Fidelity Investments.
