25th Anniversary

On the evening of Tuesday, November 17, 2020, the Lenny Zakim Fund invites you to ‘show up’ virtually in celebration of our 25th Anniversary on what would have been Lenny’s 67th birthday.

As the culminating event of our traditional No Show Ball, raise a glass to toast a quarter of a century of LZF’s dedicated and impactful work – all from the comfort of your own home.

Our goal: to raise $750,000 in 2020 in recognition of LZF’s 25th Anniversary and ensure we are able to continue supporting grassroots organizations and their leaders in any and every way we can, especially during this turbulent time.
