THANK YOU to our sponsors and attendees for making the 17th annual Bostonians for Youth gala a resounding success! We are grateful that your support has brought us to 95% of our fundraising goal. For those who have not had a chance to donate yet, please consider investing in Trinity Boston Connects’ (TBC) healing work and help us close the $18,000 gap! These much-needed funds will allow us to operate our programs, helping individuals and organizations Embody the Change needed for racial equity and healing.
