The Ellis Evening, Ellis's annual fundraiser extravaganza, was held at Barcelona Wine Bar, 525 Tremont Street, from 5:30 - 8:30 PM on Sunday, June 7th. Almost 100 people attended, conversation was lively and bidding on the silent auction was brisk and exciting. We were pleased to have given $2400 to Boston Explorers, an urban summer camp directed by Alphonse Litz and, after the contribution, we netted closed to $20,000 - our best effort yet! Kudos to us and to all of you who attended and contributed to such a great evening.
We particularly thank our commercial sponsors.
