BAC Hosts Fourth Annual Spring Gala
Thursday, April 19, 2018 | 7 pm – 10 pm

The Boston Architectural College welcomed nearly 500 guests from the architecture, design, and allied professions for the built environment to its fourth annual Spring Gala, on April 19, 2018, at the Boston Design Center. The event raised over $380,000 for the College. In its fourth year, the Spring Gala continues to grow with more guests than ever. This year’s Spring Gala attracted significant partnerships and sponsorships from Boston businesses.

Many new restaurants and breweries joined our tasting tables, and the BAC is especially thankful to our returning restaurant partners: Boston Harbor Distillery, Down the Road Brewery, Fuji at West of Chestnut, Lion’s Tail, and Yellow Door Taqueria.

“Excellent experience. Fantastic overall environment from the music to the food, drinks, auction, etc. Great opportunity to make valuable connections. Looking forward to next year!”
– 2018 Spring Gala Attendee

This year, saw the return of the Spring Gala Student “deSIGN” Competition. BAC students are paired with professional designers to create custom one-of-a-kind signs to display at the food and beverage tasting stations during the event. Switching it up this year, guests voted for their favorite sign and the winner Citrus & Salt let by designer Dennis Duffy, the team included BAC students Bill Flowers,
Chinwendu Olivia Ibe, and Paula Peña.

The 2018 Silent Auction was a hit featuring artwork by local artists and packages in and around Boston, and a new section featuring items donated or created by BAC community members.

Thank you to all of our generous sponsors, restaurant partners, volunteers, event partners, and everyone who attended and participated at the Spring Gala. We could not have made the Spring Gala a success without you and hope to see everyone next spring!
