Over $525K Raised for the Adams Benefit - 100k More To Goal


With the holidays rapidly approaching, over 70 area firms and businesses have embraced the spirit of giving and helped the Boston Bar Foundation raise over $525,000 for the premiere charitable event of the Boston legal community – the John & Abigail Adams Benefit. The event will take place on Saturday, January 25 at the Museum of Fine Arts, and will feature the BBF Public Service Award presentation to Thomas Menino for his service to the community throughout his two decades as Mayor of Boston.

The Adams Benefit Steering Committee, led by Sarah Columbia of McDermott Will & Emery and Thomas Gallitano of Conn Kavanaugh Rosenthal Peisch & Ford LLP, are working to raise another $100,000 to exceed their fundraising goal for the event. Learn how you can join this extraordinary list of sponsors, or purchase your ticket today to help support the BBF’s work in our community. 

Proceeds from the Adams Benefit support the delivery of legal services to low-income and underserved individuals, and fund direct grants that help families facing homelessness, victims of domestic violence, veterans and military personnel and others needing help in our community. Learn more about this event and the causes it supports .

A heartfelt Thank You to the 2014 Adams Benefit Sponsors
