Join Growing List of 2012 Adams Benefit Supporters

Demonstrating their support for the Boston Bar Foundation’s work in expanding access to justice for the underserved and supporting the public interest activities of the bar, 46 firms and companies have already signed on for the 2012 John & Abigail Adams Benefit with sponsorships totaling $340,000. Proceeds from last year’s event were used to fund grants to 25 legal service organizations working in our community.

Through popular request, the January 28th event will once again be held at the Museum of Fine Arts. Along with cocktails, dinner, networking and the “Art of the Americas” wing, the event will feature the special traveling exhibit “Degas and the Nude,” which has been named “one of the most electrifying exhibitions to open in Boston for years” by the Boston Globe.

The event committee, spearheaded by returning Co-Chairs Christopher Kenney of Kenney & Sams and Anthony Froio of Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi, hopes to smash previous fundraising and attendance records -- aiming to welcome 1,000 guests and raise over $625,000 for the BBF.  Join us for the most popular charitable event of the year by reserving your ticket or sponsorship package today.  Details can be found online or through this printable PDF.
