The Young Friends gathered at The Yard @ Liberty Hotel Thursday, September 12 and mingled over drinks and delicious handcrafted appetizers.

Attendees socialized and enjoyed a beautiful pre-fall evening under twinkling lights while supporting our three urban parks: the Boston Common, Public Garden, and Commonwealth Avenue Mall.

Attendees were offered free tickets to the Boston International Art Show. Anne Mostue, Young Friends co-chair, thanked attendees for their support of the parks and shared exciting upcoming projects at the Friends, including the upcoming Boston Common Master Plan and the Shaw 54th Memorial Restoration.

The exciting raffle to support the parks had lucky winners taking home two Celtics Loge tickets (courtesy of Rich Hornblower and Amy Morris), two VIP Boston Book Festival Tickets, a $100 gift card, and a BDYSQD professional stretch and detox package.
