A Great Celebration of Community!
The Four Seasons Boston ballroom was full of love last Saturday night when over 200 neighbors came together to “Celebrate Community” at the Beacon Hill Gala. Honorary Co-Chairs Cassie and Jack Gurnon symbolize to so many the spirit of community that we treasure on Beacon Hill.
The Gala Committee Co-Chairs, Melanie Bertani, Cindy Sullivan and Lindy Crawford added a new and exciting edge to the event with the sale of “bricks”, a live auction with Robin Starr from Skinner, and a silent auction as well. The BHCA would like to thank Audley Travel, Cambridge Trust and the Walton/Waterfall Family for sponsoring this event, and to all the local businesses that donated items for our brick sale.
After an amazing dinner, guests danced the night away to live music from the Sugarbabies band. A wonderful time was had by all!

The Directors of the BHCA Board were pleased to welcome Councilor Kenzie Bok and Jonathan Spillane to their board meeting this week. Bok discussed many issues that are important to her that affect Beacon Hill; namely city funding, preservation, the importance of young families in our neighborhood, transportation, streets and sidewalks, traffic regulation around the Common and Public Garden, and many others. She also discussed the MGH expansion and the Hurley Building proposed project, and welcomes input from the neighborhood on these matters.
