COVID-19

Congratulations, BOMA Boston!
Together, we raised $45,000 for Bridge Over Troubled Waters!

March 25 was intended to be the 2020 BOMA Boston Benefit, supporting Bridge Over Troubled Waters. Unfortunately, we had to cancel this in-person event.

Instead, most of our of sponsors generously donated their sponsorship dollars, and dozens of members purchased raffle tickets online, for a combined total of $45,000!

We are so proud to be able to provide Bridge Over Troubled Waters with financial support during this challenging time. Every year, Bridge serves over 2,000 homeless, runaway and at-risk youth. Right now, with schools closed, many hourly jobs shut down, and some unsafe home environments, Bridge provides crucial shelter, food, resources, and social services for the youth of Boston.

Check out sponsors, raffle winners, and more here!

BOMA Benefit Raises $45k!

Given the increased concerns and circumstances around the Coronavirus, and in response to Governor Baker's State of Emergency and other recommendations, we wanted to share our plans for BOMA events and committee meetings. 

To ensure the safety and well-being of our members, all BOMA events will be cancelled or postponed through Friday, April 17th. All committee meetings will be held via conference calls until further notice. We will continue to monitor both state and health official recommendations and will communicate scheduling changes with our members. All updates will be share with our membership via email and on our social media sites. 

The BOMA Boston Team will be in contact with Committees about next steps and meeting information. 

*If you have registered for an upcoming event prior to April 17th, you will be contacted shortly regarding alternative plans and next steps*

In the interim, you are encouraged to utilize the following resources for important Coronavirus updates:
