BGCD Attends “Hamilton!”: In partnership with the Marilyn Rodman Theater for Kids program, BGCD Board member Don Rodman bought out the Opera House last week so that over 2,000 Greater Boston youth could see the biggest show to hit Broadway in years – “Hamilton!”

As a partner agency of the Rodman Ride for Kids, BGCD sent 150 members and chaperones to see the show. The musical is about the rise and fall of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, who was the first U.S. Treasury Secretary. The performance offered a great deal of history to our members who were excited for this fun opportunity to learn.

It was an amazing night for all. Thanks to Don for making this fantastic opportunity available to our members.
