Thank you all who supported or attended our 5th annual benefit gala OUT OF THE BOX: Think like Einstein, Paint like Pollock on October 27th, 2016! The event was a great success with 200 attendees, a super fun party, and sufficient funds raised to sustain our existing programs we’ve been running for 5 years in some of the Boston public schools.
I trust you all had a wonderful fun time at the gala. Please view these photos to see what a fun night it was!
Thank you photographer Pierce Harman for taking these wonderful photos!
Your support, care, and love makes it possible for us to fulfill our mission. You are helping students discover and explore their innate creativity – an important step in reaching their full potential.
We are growing and looking forward to expanding our programs in 2017 by serving even more students at even more schools. If you wish to support these efforts further, you may submit a one time or a recurring donation using our online donation form.
Special thanks to our guest auctioneer and master of ceremonies David Brown, Chief Advancement Officer at MAB Community Services and former Channel 5 broadcaster and to our live performer, artist Percy Fortini-Wright, for painting an indoor mural, which was auctioned off at the Gala.
