A Blue Christmas

This past December, The Shops at Prudential Center launched  “31 Nights of Light,” a new Boston holiday tradition, partnering with 28 Boston-area organizations to light the top of the Tower a different color each night in December.

Autism Speaks, New England Chapter board members Larry Cancro (Senior Vice President - Fenway Affairs) and Sean O'Brien (President - Teamsters Local 25) were also in attendance to celebrate the lighting.

Monday, December 21 featured Autism Speaks and its signature blue awareness color.  At 5:00 p.m.,  a seven-foot switch was honorarily “flipped” by Dennis Floyd and his son, Grant, from Lynn, Mass.  Actually, five-year-old Grant muscled the huge light switch up and on, lighting the 51st floor of the Prudential Tower in Autism Speaks blue. The Floyds were one of many donors who, for a donation of $25 or more between December 9 and December 16, were entered into a drawing to win this special honor.

The Prudential Tower in downtown Boston was lit in blue for autism awareness on Dec. 21!
