About Brighton
map
The area of Brighton was established in the late 17th century and was first known as "Little Cambridge". The residents acquired legal separation from Cambridge in 1807 and officially named the town Brighton. The town was then officially annexed to the City of Boston in 1874 and it remains a part of Boston today.

In post colonial days Brighton was home to agricultural plots and stockyards, but with the extension of the street car lines in the 1800s came residential growth. Soon houses and apartments were built all across the neighborhoods.

Brighton is primarily populated by graduate students and young professionals. Along Washington Street you will find small family businesses and Saint Elizabeth's Hospital - reputed as one of the finest hospitals in the northeast.

Brighton is host to the Bryman Institute, Saint John's Seminary and part of Boston College. Nearby you will find some of the finest institutes of higher learning in the country including Boston University, Harvard University and MIT.

Inaugural No Backing Down Great Gatsby Gala hosted by New England Patriots Star Jonas Gray with Special Live Performance by Legendary Recording Artist Brian McKnight
Jonas Gray of the New England Patriots is set to host the Inaugural No Backing Down Great Gatsby Gala, which includes a live performance by 16-time Grammy nominee and international R & B recording artist Brian McKnight and the chance to rub elbows with the Super Bowl Champion Patriots. The No Backing Down Great Gatsby Gala event is set to take place July 17th at the WGBH Studios in Boston, MA, and is a production of Endless Possibilities Events. Jonas Gray shares his excitement about hosting his first major charitable fundraiser: “I subscribe to the mission that we must give back to the community and fans that give so much to us, and what better way to bring together my teammates, my friends and community, than to throw an event to raise money for these worthy causes. It will be a fun-filled evening, including a live performance from legendary Brian McKnight, but more importantly, it will allow the sports and entertainment communities to come together to make an impact on the Boston community and engage fans and donors to support the important causes.” Stepping into the Great Gatsby, this Star-studded evening affair will take us back to the Roaring Twenties when there was unprecedented economic prosperity and the evolution of Jazz Music. Guests will be adored in Gatsby themed attire and the WGBH studios will be transformed into 1920’s era motif. Local eateries will be serving signature dishes at tasting stations throughout the venue while Jazz music fills the room and guests sip on champagne and other prohibition era cocktails. A replica Vince Lombardi Trophy will be on hand for guests to grab photo opportunities, as well as a silent auction where guest will bid on one of kind items. The event is set to benefit You’re With Us!, a non-profit organization that creates inclusion opportunities with able-bodied college groups for young adults with disabilities. A small portion of the monies raised will also go towards the making of the No Backing Down film. No Backing Down is an inspirational book written by NFL Agent, Sean Stellato, and is the true story of the 1994 Salem High football team. The book has gained national attention and is in the process of being made into a full-length feature film. Sponsorship packages, VIP packages, and ticket packages are now available for this private, exclusive affair by visiting www.endlesspossevents.com or email questions to Alyssa Boyd at Alyssa@EndlessPossEvents.com. VIP red carpet is scheduled to begin at 7pm, Brian McKnight is expected to perform at 9:45pm. Event is private and we expect to sell out.
