#BostonPRoud event - community for a cause
The Boston PRoud event was held at various locations on Boylston Street here in Boston last night. The PR community came out in droves to raise money and support the city and victims of the tragedy that unfolded on Marathon Monday earlier this year. The energy, enthusiasm and overall commitment to a greater cause brought a group of professionals together to support a worthy cause. Early estimates show the event collecting over $65,000 all of which is being donated to the Boston One Fund.
The event itself was well organized and I quickly found myself surrounded by folks I had not had a chance to catch up with in person for years. Everywhere I looked there were people reacquainting themselves with one another. It was truly fantastic to see friends, alumni, colleagues, partners, and even family all at the same location having a great time. The night was electric and it felt great to be back on Boylston Street supporting local business and making a contribution to keep Boston Strong!
Congratulations to all of the lucky raffle winners and a big thank you to those who took time to organize or contribute to this event. We are all #Proud to be a part of and give back to this amazing city!
