2019 Spirit of Youth – Serving Better Futures

​September 27, 2019 | International Tennis Hall of Fame

Boys Town New England invites you to our 2019 Spirit of Youth event on Friday, September 27!

The event will be held at the International Tennis Hall of Fame where you will have private access to tour the museum at your leisure. We will enjoy BBQ catered by Newport's own Binge BBQ.

We will be honoring former NBA player, motivational speaker and wellness advocate, Chris Herren, with our Spirit of Youth award this year! Following his own recovery journey, Chris founded Herren Project in 2011 to help others navigate the road to recovery from the disease of addiction. More recently, he founded Herren Wellness. He also regularly speaks at local schools and similar settings to share his story with the goal of making a positive difference in the lives of others - especially youth. His inspirational message and organizations have helped thousands of people! Learn more about Chris and his organizations at

All proceeds from the event will go to support the children and families served by Boys Town New England. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you September 27!
