Boston's Polish Club celebrates 80 years with Gala Fundraiser

Sunday, September 22, 2019

Proceeds and donations from the event will help improve the historic building

On Saturday, September 21st, the Polish American Citizens Club will be holding its 80th Anniversary Gala and Fundraiser. All proceeds and donations from the evening will go toward capital improvements and beautifying the building.

Opened in 1939, the Boston Street building has been a fixture in Boston’s Polish Triangle and a gathering spot and social club for Polish and Polish-Americans from all over the greater Boston area.

“The Gala is a chance to celebrate our history and our past, but to also look toward our future,” says Erica Manczuk Stocks, the Club’s Recording Secretary. “With many ethnic social clubs disappearing all over the country, our club remains and we need the support from the community to help us stay open another 80 years!”

Over the past five years, a new generation of leadership has worked to ensure the Club has the financial and physical ability to meet its mission and has made strides to engage with the changing community around them, like hosting Polish Fest Boston and partnering with Dorchester Brewing on a paczki-inspired beer recipe.

Event starts at 8pm and will include food and a live band. Tickets are $100 per person. Sponsorship opportunities are also available, starting at $500. For more information, please go to
