ABCD Celebrates 50 Years of Serving the Community

Action for Boston Community Development celebrated their 50th year anniversary of providing basic services and innovative programs that help empower individuals, families, and communities in Boston to overcome poverty, live with dignity, and achieve their full potential. On Friday November 2, 2012, ABCD hosted their 50th anniversary Gala at the Boston Marriott Copley Place Hotel.
With over 1,100 people in attendance to the event, the ABCD Gala turned out to be amazing. Mark Shiver accepted the ABCD Hall of Fame award on behalf of his late father, Sargent Shriver, who headed up the Peace Corps and the War on Poverty programs in the 1960s. To end off this amazing night, jazz legend Nat King Cole’s Daughter and also Grammy Winner, Nathalie Cole performed some of her and her father’s hits.    
Congratulations ABCD for this milestone accomplishment and working to serve the Boston community for another 50 years.
