BBF Adams Benefit Raises Over a Half Million and Counting

Untitled Document

The Boston Bar Foundation’s 2012 John & Abigail Adams Benefit reaches a benchmark of half a million dollars today in sponsorships from 75 organizations dedicated to promoting justice in our community. Over 1,000 guests are expected on January 28th to fill the galleries of the Museum of Fine Arts for an evening of cocktails, dancing, live music and fine art, all while celebrating the important work of the BBF. There will be a special presentation honoring Paul Grogan, President and CEO of the Boston Foundation with the 2012 Public Service Award for his commitment to the Boston community and exemplary leadership of the Boston Foundation.

Amid continuing decreases in funding and increased need for legal services, this year’s Benefit is more important than ever. The proceeds from this event allow the BBF to provide support for critical legal services organizations and foster unique public service programs that improve access to justice in our community. Demonstrate your commitment to the Boston community by joining us on January 28th for what is sure to be a memorable evening.
