“This unprecedented level of support for the College is incredibly important at this time,” said BAC President Glen LeRoy about the sold-out event. “It is heartwarming to see our community come together and celebrate the BAC’s achievements while looking ahead to its bright future.” The College made a concerted effort to ensure that as much donated funds as possible would go directly to deserving students while making the conscious effort to live up to the promise of a sustainable event. The BAC worked with valued community members such as the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, who lent potted flowers to decorate with instead of traditional cut flowers, and also partnered with local restaurants and businesses to provide food and beverages for the evening. The event is truly unlike any other traditional gala, minimizing the waste without sacrificing glam. Reclaimed wood and recycled mateFY15: FY15: rials were used to create the décor throughout the space. “I wanted 5$ 05 00 K0 K to support this$ event because the mission of the BAC mirrors our C A C SA HS H+ +I NI -NK- IKNI D ND mission of sustainability within events,” said Michael Nedeau, owner of PBD Events. “We were very proud to be a part of such a prestiFY16: FY16: $ 2$ 02 00 K0 K gious and collaborative event.”
