Big Cheese Reads Gala COVID-19 Refund Policy

Based on the newest recommendations of the CDC, and orders from Governor Baker and Mayor Walsh, we are canceling the 16th annual Big Cheese Reads Gala scheduled for Thursday, May 7, 2020 at the Westin Copley Place, Boston. It is still our full intention to honor your commitment to our work – we hope to hold a rescheduled event later this summer, but details are still being determined.

While it deeply saddens us that we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the event for the first time in 16 years, we are encouraged by the overwhelming amount of support we have received from you, our supporters.

Any guests or sponsors who have already purchased tickets to the Gala have the option to:

  • Convert their ticket(s) or sponsorships into a tax-deductible donation to Boston Partners in Education, to benefit our youth mentoring programming
  • Receive a refund in full for the price of any ticket(s) or sponsorships purchased

Thank you for your continued patience as we navigate this rapidly-changing situation. We are grateful for your support of Boston Partners in Education, and we hope to see you this summer.
