BBF Adams Benefit raises $300,000 and counting

The Boston Bar Foundation John & Abigail Adams Benefit is still over two months away, and already the steering committee has hit the $300,000 mark. There are still several sponsorship opportunities available--click here to learn more about our sponsorship levels and tickets to the event. If interested in sponsoring the BBF Adams Benefit, contact Erica Southerland at or 617-778-1930.

The Adams Benefit is the most anticipated charitable event of the year for the Boston legal community, and will take place on Saturday January 26th at 6:30pm at the Museum of Fine Arts. Guests of the Adams Benefit enjoy gourmet food and drinks while listening to live music and exploring the MFA’s “Art of the America’s” wing, and the season’s visiting exhibit “Mario Testino: In Your Face”. 

Proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships go towards the funding of the BBF grantee projects and organizations. In 2012, the Adams Benefit raised over $600,000 to fund public service programs benefitting veteran’s services, housing and homelessness, domestic violence, immigration issues and more.

Each year at the Adams Benefit the BBF honors a member of the Boston business community with the Public Service Award. This award was created to honor a business leader who has demonstrated extraordinary efforts of time and talent to public service. This year’s Public Service Award honoree will be Carol Fulp, President and CEO of The Partnership, INC. Click here to read the full press release on this year’s honoree.
