NEW BEDFORD — We are proud of what we have accomplished together over the past 12 months, so we are unabashedly throwing a party. Don’t miss the opportunity to celebrate your impact!

On June 23, you’re invited to a New Bedford Light celebration with a Pulitzer-Prize winning speaker at The Black Whale Kitchen + Bar.

The event will feature Pulitzer Prize-winning guest speaker Walter Robinson, a member of The Light’s board of directors. Robinson led the Boston Globe’s Spotlight Team that won a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for its reporting on the Roman Catholic Church’s sexual abuse scandal.

The June 23 event starts at 6 p.m. Tickets are $150 and include food and open bar. Proceeds will support The Light’s public interest journalism and will keep our news free.

We can’t thank you enough for your support. Hope to see you there!
