First Night Boston, New England’s largest New Year’s Eve celebration, today announced the addition of its 2020 Non-Profit Partner Program, Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston. In addition to hours of free entertainment, light shows, ice sculptures, and other family-friendly programming, 2020 event-goers will have the opportunity to support the great work of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston with a text-to-give campaign. This collaboration will celebrate the amazing work that happens every day across Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston’s 11 locations throughout Boston and Chelsea as well as its YouthConnect program in partnership with the Boston Police Department. It is the second year of the First Night Non-Profit Partner Program, which adds an element of philanthropy and altruism to Boston’s New Year’s Eve celebrations. We are very pleased to team up with First Night Boston in this meaningful way for New Year’s Eve,” said Josh Kraft, Nicholas President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston. “We are steadfastly committed to the young people of Boston and Chelsea and we can’t think of a better way to kick off our next decade of work than by showcasing it as part of Boston’s biggest celebration. We’re excited to join in on the countdown and see Boston light up.” More than 400,000 guests are expected to visit Copley Square and the surrounding area on December 31. Now in its 44th year, First Night Boston showcases the city’s beauty in a night of light, music, and ice. First Night Boston is free to all and supported in part by donations from the people and businesses of the surrounding community.
