A Special Note about the 2015 We Are Boston Anniversary Gala:

2015 We are Boston Anniversary Gala an unprecedented success!

On behalf of the Mayor’s Office of New Bostonians, the Gala Co-Chairs Bob Reynolds and Jim Rooney, and the Anniversary 10 Host Committee, we would like to thank all the guests and sponsors of this year’s event. Over 1,000 people came out on Tuesday evening to celebrate new Bostonians’ contributions and rich cultures, enjoyed a star-studded performance by Academy Award-winning and multi Grammy-nominated Vanessa Williams, and to honor our five awardees: Junot Diaz (Leadership), Chef Ming Tsai (Leadership), Walgreens (Community Champion), Frangeli Ramirez (Youth Action) and Justin Nguyen Phuoc (Youth Action). Special thanks to our LIVE auction donors, auctioneer John Terrio, our inspiring speakers, Amit Dixit and Valeria Do Vale, our fabulous host, Janet Wu of WHDH Channel 7 and to our performers – 3 Sudacas, Angel Dance Company, master illusionist Darren Young, Ilana Katz Katz, Marcus Santos and Afro Brazil, Naty Hernandez, O’Shea Chaplin Academy of Irish Dance, Salsa Y Control Dance Company, Sociedad Latina Youth Band, Veronica Robles and her Mariachi, Wax and Gold, and YOFES Musical. Hats off to our volunteers for their time and commitment!
Thank you to everyone for all you do in making sure that New Bostonians are an integral part of this city’s social, civic and economic fabric!
Robert L. Reynolds, James E. Rooney, The Anniversary 10 Committee & The New Bostonians Team
All the best,
Alejandra St. Guillen
