Free Fun Fridays start June 28th

June 5, 2019

You gotta love free!  

The Highland Street Foundation was founded to address the most pressing concerns for children and families in Massachusetts and California. They provide funds to many non-profits that provide education, housing, mentorship, health care, environmental and arts education to families. Through their Free Fun Fridays program, the Foundation has arranged with a wide variety of cultural and entertainment venues throughout Massachusetts to offer a free-admission Friday this summer.  Every Friday from the end of June to the end of August, 10 different venues will provide free admission to families with the goal of increasing access and enrichment opportunities.
