PAIR Gala Celebration 

Funding Drives Graphics NEWEST5

The annual PAIR Gala Celebration will be held on Monday, June 8, 2020 at the Seaport Hotel, Boston, MA. The Gala brings together close to 400 leaders in Greater Boston’s legal, nonprofit and business communities, including law firm partners, corporate counsel, philanthropists, immigrants, and community activists. Guests have a chance to meet former PAIR clients and to hear their stories of hope.

PAIR's Annual Gala celebration is a special evening and powerful moment to honor all those who work so hard to assist our vibrant immigrant community. For more than 30 years, the gala has stood out as a gathering community allies who are committed to supporting PAIR and immigrant rights through volunteerism, donations, corporate sponsorship, and PAIR's Fund the Mission drive. Each dollar donated to PAIR is one more immigrant’s dream of a better life realized, one more helping hand to those desperately in need of legal aid, and is one more asylum seeker who has the opportunity to find their voice and live their dream.

To learn more about the gala, check out our past event. Visit the PAIR 2019 Gala Flickr page or view the 2019 gala program.  If you would like to learn about gala sponsorship, see below for more details.
