The history of Boys Town as a national child and family care organization is certainly a story worth telling. It is the story of how one man, armed with nothing but extraordinary vision and immense dedication, changed how America cares for its children. Now, 100 years later, there are thousands of stories to be told about the healing that happens through our programs.

The Providence Biltmore, located in the heart of downtown Providence is a landmark hotel with an illustrious past. Designed by the celebrated firm of Warren and Wetmore, the architects behind New York City's Grand Central Station, the hotel debuted to widespread acclaim in 1922 and quickly became the tourist and social center of Providence. Today, deeply woven within the city's fabric and culture and beloved by generations of guests, the Providence Biltmore is an authentic Providence tradition.

We hope you will be able to join us as we hear the inspirational stories of youth and families whose lives have been changed through our programs. We promise you an exciting time and thank you in advance for your support of Boys Town New England and the children, families and communities we serve every day.

Partners are still needed for this event! If you're interested, please contact Ashley Medeiros at or register now. Thank you to our wonderful 2017 sponsors!
