Adams Benefit Fundraising at Record Pace - Tops $500,000

Firms and companies from across Boston are coming together to help people in Boston get the help, the hope and the legal resources they need as they face some of life’s toughest challenges.  Raising over $500,000 and counting in sponsorships for this year’s John & Abigail Adams Benefit, these organizations are publicly demonstrating their support for the BBF mission and for ensuring that essential legal services continue to be available to Boston residents, even as other funding declines.  

The BBF’s John & Abigail Adams Benefit, which will take place on Saturday, January 25, 2014 at the Museum of Fine Arts, is the premiere fundraising event for supporting the delivery of legal services to low-income and underserved individuals and families. 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.

Please join us as we seek to raise even more for this cause.  The event promises to be an evening to remember, and will feature the BBF’s Public Service Award presentation to Mayor Thomas Menino for his unparalleled leadership and service to the community throughout his 20 years as Mayor of Boston.
