24 Firms Pledge $310,000 for BBF Adams Benefit

Untitled Document

With more than six months to go before the 2014 John & Abigail Adams Benefit, the Boston Bar Foundation has already raised $310,000 thanks to the generous contributions of 24 Boston area firms.

The Adams Benefit is set for January 25th 2014 at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, where Mayor Thomas Menino will be honored with the BBF’s Public Service Award. Each year over 800 lawyers and business professionals attend the annual event, which supports the delivery of legal services to low-income and underserved individuals and families in our community. Since IOLTA funding began to decline 5 years ago, the BBF has made over $1.5 million in grants from Adams Benefit proceeds alone to help fund legal services organizations in Boston, which work in all areas of need from housing and homelessness to domestic violence.
