The Friends of Dana-Farber's third annual Surprise Party was held April 29. The event, a fundraiser for the 1,200-member volunteer organization, honored Institute Trustee Billy Starr, founder and executive director of the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, for his more than 30 years of support to Dana-Farber.  Funds raised by Friends are allocated for oncology fellowships, patient services, and cutting-edge research and treatment programs throughout all divisions and departments at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, including nursing, social services, and pastoral care.
