Step Up & Speak Out

Step Up & Speak Out honors outstanding individual contributions to supporting and protecting the most vulnerable members of our community. 

In its third year, on October 4, 2017 over 300 people gathered for cocktails & hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, and community conversation set to the sweeping backdrop of the Boston skyline from the UMass Club at One Beacon. The event raised $250,000 which will be used to help children and families receive support and services.

2017’s honorees were Senator Linda Dorcena Forry & Bill Forry, Jonathan & Margot Davis, and Jack & Carol Harrington.
