During the event’s program, guests enjoyed dinner, a live interview with Kyle & Marissa and an exciting live auction.

Governor Baker and First Lady Baker were also in attendance and spoke about the importance of the mission of the foundation and recognized all Veterans in attendance for Veteran’s Day. Patriots owner, Robert Kraft, also attended the event to mingle with guests and support Kyle and Marissa.
In all, more than $400,000 was raised in support of the Van Noy Valor Foundation, including a $15,000 donation pledged by Kyle & Marissa Van Noy.
