Annie and Amara: EV transforms lives
The EV family, friends and Sponsors gathered over 200-strong at the Charles Hotel on November 7th as we celebrated 35 years of helping Boston youth succeed! EVkids and EVcorps and college volunteers greeted guests who enjoyed pictures on the Red Carpet, bid on unique Silent and Live Auction items, mingled with local celebrity hosts Jordan Rich (WBZ/CBS) and Steve Aveson (NECN), and capped off the evening with live music, a DJ and dancing at a fun Afterparty at the adjoining Regattabar.
