Participating in Pumpkin Glow

On Wednesday, October 29th several members of the Arrowstreet team headed over to Kendall Square for the 2014 Great Pumpkin Glow. The annual corporate challenge is sponsored in part by our client, BioMed Realty, and benefits the Boys and Girls Clubs of Middlesex County.

The Pumpkin Glow took place in the North Plaza, in the shadow of our newest project for BioMed, 450 Kendall Street, and guests enjoyed pumpkin carving, live music, cocoa, and doughnuts before the winners were announced. Later there was a cocktail reception in the lobby of 675 West Kendall Street, catered by Blue Ribbon BBQ and featuring a 50/50 raffle. We all had a wonderful time and can’t wait to support this wonderful cause again next year.
