Join us for an evening of delicious food, dynamic company, and theatrical entertainment. In doing so you will lend critical support to the Promise Place School's mission to offer permanent and safe living and educational environment for LGBTQ homeless youth. After mingling with friends, new and old alike, at the reception, the program will begin in earnest with dinner and a lively live auction (please see below for the menu). We will then take a moment to recognize six individuals for their tireless work and advocacy on issues concerning young people, education, community health, and LGBTQ rights: Congressman Joe Kennedy, State Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz, Carl Sciortino, Joe Finn, Diego Sanchez, and Elisabeth Jackson. The evening will culminate in a special vocal performance by the internationally renowned Larry Watson.
