Once again, The Dimock Center has begun planning for its most renowned event of the year: Steppin’ Out! With a goal to be bigger and better than ever, the annual gala will be held at the Sheraton Boston Hotel on November 7, 2015.
We are excited to announce that this year’s headliner is the one and only Chaka Khan!
Ten-time Grammy Award winner Chaka Khan (“Ain’t Nobody,” “I Feel for You”) is an international icon who has the rare ability to sing in a spectrum of music genres, from classical and pop/rock to R&B and country. From the moment she burst on the scene with Rufus (“Tell Me Something Good”), she’s been acclaimed for her powerful voice and show-stopping stage presence.
In addition, this year’s event will also feature after party beats from DJ Spinderella.
DJ “Spin,” as she likes to be called, is a Grammy award winning DJ, producer, rapper, and writer. She is one of the original pioneers of hip hop music, beginning her career as a member of the iconic rap group Salt-N-Pepa, and is still a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
The newly renovated Sheraton Boston Hotel is the perfect venue for this year’s event. Situated in the heart of Boston, the Sheraton Boston stands as the gateway to Back Bay, with an indoor passage to the Shops at the Prudential Center and the Copley Place Mall, and two direct connections to the Hynes Convention Center. With its event space all on one floor, the new location provides easy access and fluidity for an evening filled with spectacular entertainment and mission-driven programming.
“At the Sheraton Boston, we are excited to partner with The Dimock Center on Steppin’ Out. We are so impressed by their work and love supporting an organization that truly makes Boston a better place,” said General Manager Angela Vento.
While many details are still in the works, please save the date for this exciting night that is sure to capture the essence of the important services The Dimock Center provides to the Boston community.
