Last Thursday over 200 guests, 48 firms and organizations, and numerous local businesses teamed up to raise over $45,000 at the Boston Bar Foundation’s 7th annual Casino Night for Summer Jobs – marking a record year for the fundraiser. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to fund the BBA Summer Jobs program. The program, which is a collaboration among the BBA, Boston Public Schools, the Mayor’s Office and law firms throughout Boston, has provided more than 750 summer employment opportunities for young people since 1993. The Boston Bar Foundation will provide 10 paid internships this summer at area non-profits, government offices and the courts through the BBA Summer Jobs Program.
At the event guests explored two floors full of authentic casino games to test out their gambling skills, while enjoying food and drinks. The entertainment didn’t stop there; guests entered into raffles, watched magic tricks, and competed for silent auction prizes.
We hope that you enjoyed Casino Night and will take a chance to scroll through our event album. Thank you for your contribution to this important cause. If your firm or organization is interested in hiring a student this summer, or for more information on supporting Summer Jobs, contact Katie D’Angelo at [email protected].
Thank you to our supporters
