The Boston Bar Foundation John & Abigail Adams Benefit returns to the
Museum of Fine Arts

Proceeds from the event fund grants to legal services organizations that provide critical assistance to low-income individuals and families in the Greater Boston area, and support initiatives that facilitate innovative public service programs within the legal community. Thanks to the support of our sponsors and donors, last year the BBF granted a record breaking $1.2 million to legal services organizations. Read more about our work the Adams Benefit makes possible.
