Dear Friends,
Thank you for your commitment to Trinity Boston Connects (TBC) and the 13th annual Bostonians for Youth (BFY) gala! Your generosity and support are invaluable to the programs and services that we provide to youth of color in Boston and the community.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, we are postponing our Bostonians for Youth gala. The new date is Wednesday, October 14, 2020 from 6:00-9:00 p.m.    We understand that this may cause an inconvenience, but your health and safety are of prime importance to us. We were fortunate to find an alternate date at the Intercontinental Hotel Boston to host this wonderful celebration and presentation of the Leader of Change Award to Louise Burnham Packard. 
Although our gala has been postponed, the need for funds to support the work cannot be postponed!  If you have not already made your commitments to BFY, we ask that you support our mission as if the March date was still in effect
  • Please consider making your ticket purchases, sponsorship commitments, and donations in March through our website or via check to help us reach our event revenue goal of $380,000. 

  • Please continue to invite friends, family, and colleagues to support BFY.

We count on receiving this foundational revenue in our FY First Quarter t o support our ability to continue providing Boston youth with the resources and opportunities they need to flourish.

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Sheila Gunn, Events and Development Operations Manager at

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, October 14, 2020!

With gratitude,
Sheila C. Peterson
