The Boston Harbor Association (TBHA) held its 18th annual Celebration and Auction this week at the Boston Harbor Hotel on Rowes Wharf. Attendees enjoyed a donated buffet from Legal Sea Foods and Paul Saperstein was the volunteer auctioneer for a live auction featuring items like lunch with Senator Scott Brown in D.C., a waterfront tour with new BRA Director Peter Meade, a football signed by Tom Brady, lunch at the Parkman House with Mayor Menino, diving in the New England Aquarium tank, sunset cruises on the Harbor, and more. In addition, there were over 80 silent auction items.
The Boston Harbor Association works to improve Boston Harbor’s water quality, increase public access to the waterfront and ensure a green working port.
TBHA recently hosted the first-ever “Boston Harbor Sea Level Rise Forum”, focusing attention on the impacts of climate change and sea level rise on Boston’s neighborhoods.
Proceeds from this fundraiser will support TBHA’s harbor education programs, including free programs for Boston-area youths at Spectacle, Georges, and Deer Islands, TBHA’s advocacy for increased public amenities along Boston’s HarborWalk, and TBHA’s work with waterfront property owners on sustainable development.
This event has become a tradition for young professionals, community leaders, environmentalists and public officials to gather for a fun-filled night of networking and celebrating Boston Harbor.
