The annual Mass Badge Law Enforcement Harbor Cruise continues its successful legacy in its 24th year! Selling out entirely, it has established itself as one of Boston’s premier summer events. This cruise saw a turnout of approximately 800 attendees, despite the dreadful weather. This event is a great time, a major annual fundraising initiative and a significant community gathering.
Attendees, including first responders and patrons, attended in impressive numbers to support this notable cause. The evening was enlivened with music by DJ(s) Kenio, Mike and Kbrini Halls, accompanied by a t-shirt giveaway. The event also featured a check presentation to Revere Police School Resource Officer Joe Singer, who started Revere Boxing Outreach, a nonprofit afterschool boxing program for Revere students ages 12-18.
“Our sustained success over these 24 cruises is largely attributable to our generous sponsors, our dedicated members, the invaluable support of our first responders, and the wider community,” said Everett Police Officer Raoul Goncalves, who founded Mass Badge.
Mass Badge is particularly grateful for the dedicated support from local police marine units, who provided a special cruise escort. Mass Badge stated, “We extend our deep gratitude to sponsors, including John Angiolillo and Richard D’Angelo of Dunkin’ Donuts, Costco Wholesale, Icon Motor Group, Stars Branding, Valentim Plumbing, Boston Pads, Quealy Towing, Oliveira’s Steak Bar & Grill, and Members Plus Credit Union. Their unwavering support significantly contributes to the success of our mission.”
