Evening Expedition Gala

Thursday, April 6, 2017 at the Seaport Hotel

On Thursday, April 6, 2017 at the Seaport Hotel guests of the 2017 Evening Expedition Gala learned there is something powerful about the word “can.”

They heard from Thompson Island Outward Bound graduate J’Saun and witnessed the enormous success that is unleashed when young people are given the opportunity to tackle challenges and realize they can succeed. They watched a powerful video produced by MMB that made everyone feel the positive impact of “Where You Can.” And they discovered everyone has the ability to change, “I can’t… I won’t… I don’t want to” into “I can…”

Thank you to everyone who attended for enthusiastically helping Boston Public School kids visit Thompson Island Outward Bound – a place where they can learn, be themselves, play, and feel smart.  Last night proved to be one of our best events yet, raising $615,000!
