It was an extraordinary evening. On Wednesday, October 19th, emcee Karen Holmes Ward of WCVB-TV led us through a creative program, with Charlie “Coach” Titus brilliantly leading the live auction. Over 300 guests attended this special evening at the Seaport Hotel, beginning with a cocktail reception and exciting silent auction, followed by dinner with music by Kenny Grubbs.
Spoken word artist, Art Collins enlivened the celebration with the moving spoken word tribute to our honoree, Attorney Michael Curry, leader, advocate, and mentor – dedicated to health care access, social justice, and the advancement of equal opportuniy and a partner in our work as the president of the Boston branch of the NAACP.
Project Director Kim Janey delivered powerful remarks on the 20th anniversary of one of MAC’s signature programs, the Boston School Reform Project, working to eliminate opportunity & achievement gaps through systemic policy change.
We thank our fabulous committee for organizing this wonderful evening
and helping us raise critical funds to advocate for children.
