Over 200 people raised a glass to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) students of merit at Point Foundation’s sixth annual Boston Cornerstone fundraising event. Jorge Valencia, executive director and CEO called the event, “without fail, one of the most successful of the close to ten Cornerstone events we hold around the country each year. Point continues to have a number of scholars going to school in New England and we have a growing network of alumni in the region. So our ties to Boston and New England strengthen every year.”

Alex Morse, mayor of Holyoke, Massachusetts and Point Foundation alumnus, kicked off last night’s fundraising celebration. saying, “It has been a wonderful experience being a Point Scholar.”
