Check out scenes from the May 3, 2018, event at The Liberty Hotel.


On May 3, 2018, 200 of Boston’s business leaders and early childhood supporters gathered to support Room to Grow and commit to ensuring equal opportunity for all children. The morning included a panel discussion on social impact investing and inspiring social responsibility in the boardroom, community, and at home. Funds raised will help Room to Grow support parents as they activate their natural strengths and expand their knowledge, so children thrive from the start.
