Each year, the Boston Bar Foundation raises funds through these signature events to support essential charitable activities.

  • Passport to Pairings

    Thank you for joining us for the 2nd annual Passport to Pairings: An Evening to Benefit Public Service. Over 200 people turned out for the BBF event to benefit the public service projects of the BBA. The night was a success - the stations were crowded throughout the evening as guests sampled gourmet food and beverage pairings. Thanks to our committed donors and sponsors, the BBA will continue it's work assisting, guiding and reaching out to Boston's most underserved citizens. 

  • Society of Fellows Events

    Summer is finally here! Celebrate with the Boston Bar Foundation as we recognize the commitment and support of the Society of Fellows members at our annual Fellows Summer Reception. We are especially excited to welcome and celebrate 2015's newest members. All members of the Society of Fellows are invited for this exclusive and relaxed evening of summer cocktails, appetizers and live music at 16 Beacon Street.  

  • Casino Night

    Thank you for joining us for the 6th Annual Casino Night for Summer Jobs fundraiser. 200 people were on hand to 'bet the house' on the next generation of Boston's workforce! A great time was had by all - eating, drinking, playing and catching up with friends - all to support jobs for our city's deserving high school students. 20 companies demonstrated their commitment to Boston's youth through sponsorship of the event, contributing over $23,000 to the BBF (enough to put 6 teens to work this summer). Between sponsors, ticket sales and our silent auction the BBF raised nearly $35,000 to support the Summer Jobs program, and put 15 students to work this summer!  100% of the proceeds from Casino Night will go to the M. Ellen Carpenter Fund for Summer Jobs, which funds paid summer internships for Boston Public School Students at area non-profits, government offices and the courts through the BBA Summer Jobs Program.  

  • Late Night at the Museum

    Thank you for attending the first ever Late Night at the Museum!  We were happy to welcome law students and new lawyers to the event and excited that so many guests stayed and joined in on the fun, for this special late night addition to the Adams Benefit. 100% of the proceeds from this event are used for direct grants to legal services organizations in our community. Without the generosity of our sponsors, donors and guests, none of this would be possible. We hope to see you all next year!

  • John & Abigail Adams Benefit


    Save the date for the BBF’s signature event—the annual John & Abigail Adams Benefit, which will take place on Saturday January 30th, 2016. The event is the area's largest fundraiser for legal services, and 100% of the proceeds from the evening will be used for direct grants to organizations that serve thousands of individuals and families struggling with issues such as homelessness, domestic violence and various forms of injustice. Join friends and colleagues this winter for a special evening at the Museum of Fine Arts to support the important work of the Boston Bar Foundation.
