Mayor Thomas M. Menino and his wife Angela will be on hand this Thursday, February 7th at the House of Blues to Co-Chair “HubNob,” an annual fundraiser for Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) the City of Boston’s largest youth and human service agency.
“BCYF is probably Boston’s best kept secret,” said Mayor Menino. “They are the largest youth and family serving agency in the city of Boston. They serve at least 60,000 youth and family per year. And nobody gets turned away at the door because of their ability to pay.”
HubNob is the annual signature event of the Foundation for Boston Centers for Youth & Families. This three-year old event is quickly establishing itself as one of Boston's must attend events of the year due to the delicious food, fun crowd, live music, and unique silent auction and raffle items. The theme for this year's event is “Camp HubNob” and will highlight BCYF's summer camps and programs. Be prepared for a nostalgic summer camp experience that you won't want to miss! Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy food prepared by neighborhood restaurants, bid on silent auction items, vie for great raffle prizes and dance to the music of World Premiere Band.
“HubNob helps us to support our most pressing needs including critical summer programs and the creation and development of new programming,” said Daphne Griffin Boston’s Chief of Human Services and BCYF’s Executive Director. “This event makes a profound and important impact on the lives of Boston's children.”
As of today the following organizations have committed to Camp HubNob sponsorships: AbekaM Consulting, Air Cargo Club of New England, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, The Boston Police Activities League, The Boston Red Sox Foundation, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Holly & David Bruce, Eastern Bank, David Mugar, The New England Revolution, NFocus Solutions and Gary and Lynne Smith. Program sponsors include Boston Children’s Hospital and John Hancock.
Each of BCYF’s 29 community centers, 17 pools and 1 beach offer a variety of educational, recreational and social programming for people of all ages. Through the support of volunteers, local advisory councils, and many community partners, BCYF centers’ programs reflect the needs and interests of Boston’s neighborhoods. Expected to join the Mayor, Mrs. Menino and Daphne Griffin will be a host of local notables. For information on Camp HubNob visit HubNobBoston.com.
