On Saturday, January 28, the Boston Bar Foundation will host an evening at the Museum of Fine Arts to support the important work of the Boston Bar Foundation. The event will help BBF advance its mission of promoting justice by funding and promoting innovation in legal services, enhancing access to justice for the underserved, and supporting the public interest activities of the bar. The event starts with a reception at 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner and an award ceremony.
Access to the Museum's permanent collection, an exclusive pass to the “Art of the Americas” wing and admission to the traveling special exhibit “Degas and the Nude” will provide the backdrop for an extraordinary evening of dinner, drinks, music and dancing.
The Adams Benefit proceeds have traditionally funded grants to legal services organizations that provide critical assistance to low-income individuals and families in the greater Boston area and have supported initiatives that encourage and facilitate community service by lawyers. Proceeds from the 2011 event helped to provide over $1.1 million in grants to 25 legal services organizations.
The Boston Bar Foundation will present the 2012 Public Service Award to Paul Grogan, president and CEO of The Boston Foundation, for his commitment to the Boston community and exemplary leadership of The Boston Foundation. Under Mr. Grogan's guidance, The Boston Foundation has launched high-impact initiatives in housing, the arts, education reform, workforce development and civic engagements and has grown to be the largest public charity and grant maker in New England.
