Moondance Gala

A Magical Evening in the Park

The Esplanade Association’s annual Moondance Gala is our organization’s largest and most elegant fundraiser. Each year this magical evening on the park hosts over 500 of Boston’s leaders in business, politics and philanthropy to come together to socialize, celebrate, and support our public park.

Last year, the Moondance Gala raised over $950,000 for the Esplanade Association and our work to maintain and care for the Charles River Esplanade. As a 100% privately funded park friends group, the funds raised at the gala are critical to our organization’s ability to fund important park improvements and community enriching programs for the enjoyment of the park’s millions of visitors!

This year, the Esplanade Association is thrilled to have Lori & Matthew Sidman and Jean & Christopher Egan as the 2017 Moondance Gala Committee Chairs.

We hope that you will be a part of the 2017 Moondance Gala and join us in our mission to make life better on the Esplanade. Please save the date of September 23, 2017.
