“…yet another idea that came out of the Better Government Competition, in real-time, delivered by Pioneer Institute to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts…This organization, this event, for years and years and years has been a source of wonderful ideas and terrific innovation, and I want to, on behalf of the Commonwealth, thank you for your leadership and your work in so many different spaces…”

The Tall Ships weren’t the only attraction drawing a crowd to Rowes Wharf on Monday evening.

Now in its 26th year, Pioneer’s Better Government Competition (BGC) Awards Dinner welcomed Governor Charlie Baker, MIT’s Dr. Joseph Coughlin, and BGC winner Kim Brooks of Hebrew SeniorLife, to address the major issues facing older Americans.

Housing needs.  Mobility issues.  Alzheimer’s disease.  Community involvement.  These are just a sampling of the challenges the BGC sought to tackle.

With your support, Pioneer Institute is capable of bringing together the brightest minds in the country to advance practical solutions in each of these areas.

For those of you who joined us, thank you. We hope you enjoyed the event.  For those of you unable to attend, we hope to see you next year!  Planning for 2018 is already underway.

Please consider making a gift today to help us drive this important work.
