On April 28, 2017 we hosted our 28th Annual Spring Gala at the Cyclorama in the South End of Boston. This year’s event featured interactive experiences including a backpack wall, STEAM presentations by our teachers, 360 degree videos of our programs, and more. Unique to this year, we honored 26 years of dedication and leadership from our Board Chair Matt Epstein.

Thank you to everyone who made this event so successful. Photos are available online here!
