Fall Open House Highlights Fellows Role in Helping the Community

The Boston Bar Foundation Society of Fellows welcomed more than 50 lawyers to 16 Beacon Street for an evening of philanthropy at their Fall 2013 Open House. After welcoming remarks by Fellows Co-Chair Michael Mooney (Nutter, McClennen & Fish), guests heard from Jay McManus, Executive Director of the Children’s Law Center of Massachusetts and EdLaw Project Director Marlies Spanjaard, who shared stories of the impact the Children’s Law Center has in our community and the vital work that is made possible because of the BBF’s support.

Already this year, eight Boston area attorneys and bar leaders have pledged their support for the BBF by becoming Fellows, bringing the BBF closer to its goal of raising $5 million for the permanent endowment. To learn more about how Fellows pledges provide a lasting gift of support for the Boston Bar Foundation, please visit the BBF’s website or contact Jen Merrill at jmerrill@bostonbar.org or 617-778-1938.

We also invite all BBA members to join us for the next Society of Fellows event, the Winter Open House, to be held on Thursday, January 16th, 2014. The evening will provide attendees with the opportunity to enjoy food and drink, while learning more about the Fellows Program. Read more about the event or RSVP here.
