SEAPORT — 1,500 guests donned their best black-tie and shiny formalwear for the Corey C. Griffin Foundation’s Boston Winter Ball, which marked the 10th anniversary of the nonprofit that supports youth programs in Boston. The gala, which was held at the Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport, had a theme: Shiny Disco Balls.
Hosted by the Griffin family and the event co-chairs, Steve Alibrandi, David Andrews, and Jon Farrow, the evening raises money to provide financial support to local Boston youth. Corey’s Foundation is focused on improving access to high-quality education, youth character-building programs, healthcare equity, and extended-stay patient-family housing.
Affectionately referred to as “Boston’s Biggest Night Out,” Boston Winter Ball is a fundraising black-tie benefit for the Corey C. Griffin Foundation geared toward Boston’s next generation of philanthropic leaders. BWB attendees travel from across the globe to reunite with old friends, make new ones, and party for a good cause.
The Foundation was started to honor the life of Corey C. Griffin, who died in an accident in 2014.
