The 7th Annual Shooting Touch Gala

Honoring Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey

A sincere thank you to all attendees, sponsors, donors, Board of Directors, volunteers, staff and new friends of Shooting Touch for making Saturday, September 17th Shooting Touch's most successful and impactful fundraiser to date!! 


Over 250 attendees including Mayor Marty Walsh, Attorney General Maura Healey, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans, Celtics Owner Steve Pagliuca, ESPN's Jackie MacMullan, Celtics players Kelly Olynyk and Jalen Brown, BPD Officers, Shooting Touch Board of Directors, and more all raised awareness and high impact funds for our G3 Boston and BHC Rwanda programs. 

A special thank you to event MC and new Board Member Kevin Eastman, Robert Lewis Jr. as our live auction inspiration, The Epiphany School, Blue Skye Sports and Entertainment for all coming together to celebrate the power of sport on at-risk youth!


Shooting Touch currently provides programming in Boston and Rwanda and has served over 11,000 youth in the last nine years.  But for the first time ever, Shooting Touch is focused on bringing the impact model we have successfully achieved in Rwanda back to Beantown. Our goal is to give back and impact our local youth. September 17th was a celebration to remember, highlighting not only our work around the world, but also showcasing our G3 Program (Getting Girls In the Game). Currently serving the Greater Boston community in partnership with The Boston Police Department and operating out of Dorchester's Epiphany School, we enroll over 75 low income middle school females and provide them with a safe, supportive, sport-based response to barrier's in girls' health education, physical activity and self-esteem.
