“The Boston Bar Foundation is very excited to have Tom and Sarah lead the 2014 Adams Benefit Steering Committee, said BBF President Jack Clymer. "Tom was instrumental in the success of the 2013 Benefit, and Sarah’s track record serving on the Board of Trustees and on the BBF’s Development Committee make her an excellent choice. The 2014 Adams Benefit is already off to a record start, and with Tom and Sarah’s leadership I think it will set a new standard for an exciting and very special night.”

Fundraising for the Adams Benefit is already off to a great a start, with over $330,000 in contributions donated by 29 area firms. The 2014 Adams Benefit will honor Mayor Thomas Menino with the BBF Public Service Award. For more information about the event, click here or contact Erica Southerland at
