Fellows Bring Warmth to Winter Open House

The Boston Bar Foundation Society of Fellows warmly welcomed more than 75 lawyers to 16 Beacon Street for a special evening at the Winter Open House. After remarks by BBF President Jack Clymer, Shannon Kirk of Ropes & Gray LLP shared her powerful experience as a Marathon Monday Project volunteer, illustrating the impact of the BBA and BBF’s public service initiatives in the Greater Boston community.

Already this year, 21 Boston area attorneys and bar leaders have pledged their support for the BBF by becoming Fellows, bringing the BBF closer to the long term endowment goal of $5 million.
