Lazos De Amor International and Occasions By Criselda are hosting the City of Boston’s First Annual Family Gala. It will be April 13, 2019 from 4-8 PM at 2300 Washington Street, Boston Ma.

We are looking for fun, creative volunteers to help us put on the First Annual Family Gala. We will need all hands on deck to ensure that the event runs smoothly, and the guest feel like royalty.

The Family gala is being held in honor of the families of Boston. We wanted to create a space where entire families could come together, to an elegant setting at an affordable price.

We want families to enjoy this event in their community. We understand the different family dynamics that Boston consist of and we want highlight this, and celebrate it. We want to provide equal access to families who are homeless and experiencing hard times, by providing resources like gala clothing.

This will be a great opportunity for all Boston Families, and we are looking for the best volunteers to make this happen.
