The We are Boston gala will take place at the Westin Boston Waterfront. For more information, visit www.boston.gov/calendar/we-are-boston-gala-2017.
Now in its twelfth year, The We Are Boston Gala has quickly grown into the largest event of its kind to support immigrants in our city. The Gala sells out each year!
Mingle with Boston’s most prominent CEOs, executives and diverse community leaders. Experience multi-cultural entertainment and bid on fabulous auction items. The event brings together the top influencers to support, to raise dollars and to celebrate immigrant advancement.
This year, we transport you to the Caribbean. This region makes up 15% of Boston’s immigrants in the City of Boston, and its immigrants, with their skills, cultures and languages, shaped our city. At this year’s Gala, we will pay tribute to the Caribbean community, and guests will experience the Islands’ authentically through cuisine, music and dance. Boston is home to so many cultures, making it a vibrant place for all of us privileged to live here. Our heritage is an essential part of our individual and collective identities.
