The New Bedford Light held its first fundraiser last Thursday and learned that our supporters not only value independent and community-based news, but they also know how to celebrate. It was a spectacular and entertaining evening!

There was delicious food, striking views of the working waterfront, thoughtful conversation, and a deep appreciation for the power of local journalism. And equally remarkable is the fact that the event raised more than $38,000.

Thank you for caring about journalism that makes a difference! Learn more about how you can support The Light here.
