Passport to Pairings



Join the BBF on June 25th for a trip around the world where you will explore pairings of gourmet cuisine and signature drinks, while learning about how the BBF pairs with the BBA to fund the BBA’s portfolio of public service programs. The Boston Bar Foundation’s Passports to Pairings Fundraiser presents offerings from some of the best culinary institutions in Boston and benefits thousands of people in our community.  This event brings together over 300 guests, from leaders of the bar to summer associates, for a relaxed culinary event featuring gourmet cuisine, signature drinks, live jazz and more. Catch a glimpse of the event in our photo album from last year’s Passports to Pairings debut.   


Join us for the tastiest event of the summer and to benefit programs that provide educational and employment opportunities to Boston youth, support for military veterans, pro bono assistance to those in need and much more. 100% of the proceeds from this event help fund Boston Bar Association Public Service programs.
