Gala on The Greenway
Raise a glass with us on June 6, when the Greenway Conservancy’s community of donors will come together at the Gala on The Greenway! Hailed as “the most unconditionally happy spot in all of Boston,” our beloved Rings Fountain is the dazzling centerpiece of this joyful celebration. You and your guests will enjoy a lavish cocktail supper with delectable dishes and local libations while mingling with friends, colleagues, and neighbors.
Funds raised through the Gala support the Conservancy’s work to connect neighborhoods and people through nature, public art, and community-led programming in ways that are sustainable, equitable, and welcoming.
