This year is notably special, as it marks both the 25th year of our event and the 145th anniversary of CFCS as an agency. We have some exciting things in store, and we hope you can be a part of our celebration!

We're proud to announce David Maher, President of the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce and former mayor of Cambridge, as our esteemed 2018 honoree. Even more special -- David launched fundraising efforts here at CFCS, serving a 20-year tenure as Director of Development and producing the agency's very first gala event 25 years ago.


Held every May, the CFCS Annual Circle of Friends Gala and Auction is the largest fundraising event to benefit the organization.

The critical success of our gala is made possible with the generous support of corporate and private sponsors, more than 400 attendees, volunteers, and other donors.

Proceeds from the evening directly support our programs, helping us provide children, youth, and families in more than 100 Massachusetts communities with the opportunities they deserve throughout the year.

The evening includes a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, and dinner accompanied by a presentation of CFCS' important work in the community. We invite you to host a table of your friends, family, and colleagues, and share with them the feel-good event of the year!
