Stylish Bostonians have been attending the black-tie event for the past 10 years to raise money for the Museum. A portion of the proceeds from this year’s Summer Party benefits an endowed Museum Council Special Exhibition Fund. Held in the Shapiro Family Courtyard, guests sipped on cocktails, enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, danced to music and had the opportunity to bid on pieces from the silent art auction. An after party was held at Liquid Art House on Arlington Street. The Summer Party was sponsored by Valentino.

Over on the waterfront, Bostonians gathered for the Fort Point Channel Regatta where viewers had the chance to watch Hull Lifesaving Museum’s boats race by the nearby Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, under the Congress and Summer Street bridges and through a challenging course. Viewers gathered along the HarborWalk between The Barking Crab restaurant and the Children’s Museum for some of the best views. The open water rowing race was a fun way to kick off the summer season.
