Lenore Travis Memorial Fund

The Lenore Travis Memorial Fund was established in 2015 to honor the legacy of our dear friend and former board member, Lenore Travis. The fund supports our annual Lenore Travis Youth Retreat, which brings together youth from across our two regions for an intensive weekend of learning, team bonding, and personal growth. We continue to accept donations to the fund and welcome your contribution to honor Lenore’s memory by supporting the inspiring youth leaders she cared so deeply about.

You can support the event through a sponsorship (individual or corporate), purchasing online raffle tickets, donating items for our raffle or live auction, or purchasing a ticket to attend. Save the date for May 7, 2020 at the Boston Center for the Arts!
