Message from our CEO

CLICK HERE

This past year was a year like no other. It has challenged us, made us adapt to new realities and inspired us to never give up.  We often felt humbled by the children, youth, and families that visited Boost CYAC. They are courageous, resilient survivors of indescribable abuse and violence, and they inspire us every day with their ability to heal and thrive. Your support and generosity tonight is vital to the critical support we continue to provide to vulnerable children, youth and families in our city.

I wish to express my sincerest appreciation to our guests and sponsors for supporting our 23rd annual Butterfly Ball and a very special thank you to The Butterfly Ball® Chair, Claire MacNamara, and her committee for planning this special evening.

With sincere thanks and gratitude,
Nora Constas
