Annual Events

Throughout the year, the Boston Bar hosts a variety of spirited events to support the philanthropic efforts of the Boston Bar Foundation and to fund the community engagement initiatives & pro bono work of Boston Bar members. The events provide Boston Bar members, along with their friends, colleagues, and guests, with unique opportunities to engage with one another in a festive atmosphere, while giving back to the community.

  • Summer Fundraiser

    Boston Bar Summer Fundraiser

    The Boston Bar's Annual Summer Fundraiser features some of Boston's top restaurants, live music, beer and wine, and the ever-popular chocolate fountains!  The event raises money to support the work of the Boston Bar in our community.  From providing paid summer jobs for Boston teens, to educating the next generation on financial matters and the rule of law, helping landlords and tenants access legal advice at the Boston Housing Court, and connecting members of the military, veterans and their families with lawyers,  the Boston Bar works each day to make a difference in our city. 

  • Casino Night

    Take a Chance on Boston's Youth!

    Thank you for joining us for Casino Night, one of the Boston Bar Foundation's liveliest events. Attended by over 200 members of the Boston legal community, together we raised over $35,000 to support Boston youth. Grab your lucky charm and join us next year as 16 Beacon transforms into a two-story casino, complete with table games, a silent auction, gourmet food and drinks and much more. 

    Casino Night raises money to support the M. Ellen Carpenter fund, which is used to fund programs and projects that help provide opportunities to young people in Boston.  Each year, the Carpenter Fund supports the BBA Summer Jobs program, providing paid summer internships for Boston Public High School teens and giving them a unique opportunity to experience working in the legal community.
