Eventbrite

Welcome to our 3rd Annual INVITE TO IGNITE evening showcasing local organizations in need of volunteer help. We believe the best antidote to the attrocities of the day is ACTION. So if you’re among the many frustrated by the events of the day, we invite you to come be uplifted and maybe even inticed into getting involved.

For the last two years in February, the Boston Area Sustainability Group (BASG) has hosted a special evening to affirm the positive actions of local groups with the goal of providing a breadth of opportunity for our members to sample volunteer opportunities. We do this in a rapid-fire manner to leave ample time for our “Speed Dating for Cause” portion of the evening.
