Mass Mentoring Partnership (MMP), the only statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to expanding quality youth mentoring in Massachusetts, is hosting its 5th Annual Cheers to Mentoring fundraiser on Tuesday, November 12, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Liberty Hotel. Massachusetts First Lady Lauren Baker will receive the Founders’ Award in recognition of her commitment to helping children, particularly those supported by the Wonderfund through the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families.
MMP will also be presenting a $20,000 scholarship to Garshae Mowatt-Mckenzie, a senior at Boston Community Leadership Academy. This is the fifth year in a row that ALKU, a highly specialized consulting company headquartered in Andover, and Mass Mentoring Partnership have awarded this educational scholarship to a student who has benefitted from a positive mentoring experience with an adult, is involved in the community, has shown leadership in school and outside activities, and demonstrates financial need. Mowatt-Mckenzie plans to attend a four-year college next fall. Tickets to Cheers to Mentoring are $75 each and are available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cheers-to-mentoring-tickets-72985287961.
