Artemis Circle

Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston's Women's Leadership Council

Artemis Circle brings the energy and passion of like-minded women together to collectively make a difference in the lives of Boston and Chelsea youth by supporting Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston (BGCB). This initiative enables women to be involved in a way that works best for them. Through fundraising, volunteering, and our collective voice, the Artemis Circle supports BGCB’s commitment to help all children, especially those most in need, develop the life skills and confidence they need to excel in the 21st Century.

Artemis Circle Events

Artemis Circle hosts a series of events each year to bring like-minded women together in support of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston. At the Fall Gathering, friends enjoy cocktails and conversation while learning about BGCB programming, with a new focus area each year. In December, the Sandra M. Edgerley Family Engagement Series brings supporters and their families together for a day of volunteering at the Holiday Service Day.

Then in April, more than 200 supporters come together at one of BGCB’s 11 Clubs for the Spring Luncheon, Artemis Circle’s signature event. Guests can explore all the Club has to offer with guided tours and conversations with program staff, followed by inspiring keynote remarks. This event raises critical funds to support Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston.
