If you were out and about on Monday evening, you may have noticed the soft glow of red & white from high atop the Prudential Tower. What you may not have realized was that the Prudential was lit in those colors to honor Boston Partners in Education! Each night in December, The Shops at Prudential Center recognize Boston organizations by lighting the top of Prudential Tower in a different color in support of that night’s partner.

31 Nights of Light - Prudential Tower

Students and volunteers from the Power Lunch program at the Russell Elementary School, like Josie and her fairy godmothers, came to help flip the over-sized light switch that illuminated the building at 4:30pm that day. Afterward, the students were able to celebrate by enjoying cookies and hot cocoa with their mentors at Ropes & Gray LLP.

Ropes & Gray LLP was gracious enough to host a second event that evening, as well. Power Lunch volunteers from all of our partner companies gathered to socialize and learn about our upcoming Read-a-Thon competition.

Thank you to everyone who helped make December 19, 2011 such a wonderful evening!
