Each year, the Boston Bar Foundation raises funds through these signature events to support essential charitable activities.
The annual John & Abigail Adams Benefit is the BBF’s largest fundraiser and is the Boston legal community’s leading charitable and social event, typically drawing nearly 1,000 attendees from both the legal and business sectors, as well as many judges, public officials and senior-level non-profit leaders.
Each year at the Adams Benefit, the BBF presents its Public Service Award to a business or civic leader who has shown exemplary leadership in community service and philanthropy. The award not only acknowledges the personal civic leadership of the honoree, but also seeks to recognize socially responsible corporate practices.
