Boston Cornerstone Society Event

Point Foundation held its annual Boston Cornerstone Event at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on Thursday, March 6, 2014. Over 150 guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers as they heard from Point Scholars Navidra Hardin and Cameron McGinn, who shared their powerful stories about the successes they have achieved with Point Foundation.

Under the direction of Co-Chairs Jill Stauffer and Dan Stiffler, the Host Committee raised over $108,000 - a total that is still rising as more donations arrive! The total was reached through support of our sponosors, ticket sales and donations made at the event, including a hugely successful raffle that covered such prizes as tickets to Chelsea Lately with Chelsea Handler, Watch What Happens: Live with Andy Cohen and a trip to the Four Seasons Bora Bora! 

The event continues a seven year tradition of incredible success form Boston Cornerstone events. Joining in the hard work were Host Committee members Ceceilia Allwein, William Anderson,Dan Batterman, Cyd Berry, Geoff Brownell, Sara DeBrule, Jon Ellms, Peter Epstein, Lanita Foley, Thomas Grimshaw, John Haas, Lance Koenig, Hope Krakoff, Kaija Langley, Kevin Powers, Rodney Raferty, Richard Taranto, Scott White and John Wolfarth.

Special thanks to our all our sponsors, the Mandarin Oriental, and our media sponsor, Boston Spirit. Check out photos from the event below:
