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

  • John & Abigail Adams Benefit

    The 2014 John and Abigail Adams Benefit was a great success, raising over $645,000 for legal services and welcoming nearly 900 guests to the Museum of Fine Arts on Saturday, January 25th. We thank all of our sponsors and attendees who made this event a success.

    The BBF was honored to welcome Mayor Thomas Menino, who was presented with the Public Service Award for his dedication to the City of Boston during his two decades as Mayor. The majority of the funds raised at the Adams Benefit go towards grants for legal services organizations in the city of Boston, working in such areas as housing and homelessness, veterans affairs and domestic violence.
