BBBSMB Honors Fallen Firefighter and Boston's Former Mayor for Making Boston a Better Place
This year's annual Big of the Year Gala will pay tribute to fallen firefighter Michael Kennedy of Boston Ladder 15, a Big Brother of seven years. Michael was a friend to 14-year-old Alex, taking him to sporting events and amusement parks and spending time together just hanging out. More importantly, he was a role model and mentor who changed Alex's life forever.
