On Saturday, July 30, 2022, Mass BADGE hosted its 23rd annual Mass Law Enforcement Harbor Cruise. The evening Boston Harbor cruise aboard the historic Provincetown II, featured an amazing night of food, music, and dance.
This year’s sold-out event set a record with over 850 supporters from throughout eastern Massachusetts and coming from as far away as New York and New Jersey. While on board, the guests enjoyed music on multiple decks, courtesy of the incredible DJ Kenio and DJ Klorini, as well as the ever-popular glow light dance show.
The highlight of the evening was that incredible send off and escort of the Provincetown II provided by Mass BADGE’s law enforcement Marine Unit partners, Boston Police, Quincy Police, Massachusetts State Police, Massachusetts Environmental Police, and the Winthrop Harbor Master. There was also an amazing water display by the crew of the MassPort Fireboat 31, also known as American United, which was enjoyed by everyone on board as well as the countless tourists gathered along the Boston Harbor.
“Throughout these trying times Mass BADGE has continually stayed focused on our goal of bridging the gap between law enforcement and the communities we serve by hosting annual events such as our harbor cruise, holiday toy drive, and the complimentary Thanksgiving Dinner”, said Mass BADGE Founder/President and Everett Police Officer, Raoul Goncalves. “The annual harbor cruise, being by far our largest event also serves as our most beneficial and vital fundraiser that allows us to support our yearly goals”, Goncalves stated.
Mass BADGE would like to thank and express tremendous gratitude to all the event sponsors, including Dunkin Donuts (John Angillio), Costco Wholesale Corp., Oliveira’s Bar & Grille, Valentim Plumbing, Members Plus Credit Union, Inman Motor Sales, Stars Branding, Boston Pad, Quealy Towing and Texas Roadhouse. These community partners have continually supported Mass BADGE’s endeavors year after year.
