THANK YOU to all who joined us for our 10th annual summer benefit party! We hope you had a blast celebrating with fellow supporters, watching our Club member perform, throwing a ring in our wine toss, bidding on auction items, and dancing the night away! Together we raised more than $75,000 to support affordable summer camp programs at Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston. Special thanks to Event Co-Chairs Jaqueline Foy and Rob Lashway, the entire Host Committee, and Platinum Sponsors Indicator Ventures and The Joullian Foundation.

About The Friends Council

The Friends Council is a young philanthropy group that supports Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston (BGCB). Members join to give back, develop leadership skills, and connect with like-minded peers at social gatherings, networking events, and volunteer opportunities. Membership begins with a gift of just $25 per month, the same cost the young people of Boston and Chelsea pay to join the Club for a year. In making your gift, you will not only support the critical work of BGCB but also join a group of more than 200 like-minded peers; together we raised more than $135,000 for BGCB just last year!
