You're Invited - "Fedoras & Sequins: A Night at the Casino"

MTeamers & Friends:

Have plans on Saturday, March 2?

You do now!

Whether you’re part of the team or just follow us on social media, you’re all invited to come along for one of our favorite nights of the year - our annual Spring fundraising gala in Boston, MA.


We dress to the nines for a "Fedoras & Sequins: A Night at the Casino" themed party and, for the $100 donation entry, you'll receive two drink tokens, some delicious hors d'oeuvres and $500 worth of casino chips to try your luck at the tables.

We also hold an auction and we’re looking for additional donations (have an empty holiday home, for example, that you’re willing to give up for an amazing cause for a week?). There's already some fantastic auction items on our list that will go for bidding, including a week-long trip to Sydney or Hong Kong!

All money goes into our campaign to raise $250,000 for Best Buddies International and their work toward inclusion for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, leading up to our participation in the Best Buddies Challenge on 1 June 2019.

Meredith, our Chief Motivating Officer, and her family always attend so if you haven’t met the “M” in the MTeam yet, this is a wonderful opportunity to introduce yourself and see one of those famous Mer Bear smiles in person.

“The gala has been an MTeam hallmark ever since 2016,” said Greg Lewis, Mer’s dad. “It is the highlight of my year. A spectacular evening filled with laughs, inspiration and delicious food! It also serves as the official launch of our spring fundraising season. Most importantly, it is an opportunity for our community to gather and continue our work to ensure all individuals, regardless of ability, have every opportunity to reach their full potential.”

Invite your friends and sign up as quickly as possible because spaces are limited and trust us, you don’t want to miss this one!
