Big In Boston 2016 Was A Win For The Girls

Posted 11/14/2016

After an emotional week across the nation, our community gathered at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston on Saturday night to celebrate and elevate Greater Boston’s women and girls at Big in Boston 2016 presented by AT&T. 
Little Sisters lifted their voices in front of more than 400 guests: loud, strong, clear, and bold. Because of their Big Sisters: Little Sister Ta’Kerria met with women in leadership positions at the State House, Little Sister Mariah is working toward her dream of becoming the first woman to be drafted by the NFL, Little Sister Leila believes that nothing is impossible for her, and former Little Sister Jarelis became the first in her family to graduate from high school and then college. As Jarelis said of her Big Sister Donna:
Thanks to the outpouring of generosity from our Big Sister Boston community, we raised $1.25 million together in support of positive mentoring relationships between Greater Boston’s women and girls. 
Congratulations to our Believe In Girls honoree, Mayor Martin J. Walsh, and to our Big Igniters: Luz Villar, Carolyn Casey, Kate Gilbert, BPD Superintendent Lisa Holmes, and Renee Omolade, who were also recognized at Big in Boston for their contributions to making our city a place where all children can thrive.
A very BIG thank you to our event chairs, Patricia Jacobs, President of AT&T New England, and Jack Connors, Jr. of The Connors Family Office, and to our guests and sponsors who are creating possibilities for 2,700 girls annually.
We also want to thank our friends at FleishmanHillard for creating our Big in Boston video:
