With the start of the holiday season, an outstanding group of sponsors has
generously helped the BBF raise $585,000 for the 2014 John
& Abigail Adams Benefit, putting the event steering committee within
reach of its $625,000 goal.
This year, the BBF will honor Mayor Thomas Menino with the BBF Public Service
Award. Throughout his two decades in office, Mayor Menino has proved himself an
advocate of social and economic diversity, innovative public health services,
environmental sustainability, neighborhood reform and education for underserved
youth. Please join
us as we thank Mayor Menino for his tireless commitment to making the City
of Boston a better place to live and work.
The Adams Benefit is Greater Boston's largest fundraiser for legal services, raising
money for community organizations that provide hope and help to those in need.
Since Interest on Lawyer Trust Accounts (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 fill a portion of the gap in legal services funding. In 2013,
the BBF granted $900,000, half of which was generated from the sponsors of the
Adams Benefit, to 28 sponsors. We invite you to learn more about the work of
our grantees and meet
