Dukakis 2013: Celebrating Governor Dukakis' 80th Birthday


Thank you to all who attended Dukakis 2013 on Friday November 1. It was a beautiful evening featuring touching sentiments from keynote speaker George Stephanopoulos, Kitty Dukakis, WBZ Nightside's Dan Rea, and host of others. In addition, the Governor received surprise video tributes from fellow Brookline native Conan O'Brien, and former President Clinton. Though, the most popular speaker of the night was undoubtedly our NECC Student Council Vice President Bradley, who brought a crowd of over 700 people to their feet! We'd also like to give a big thank you to our student greeters, who did a fantastic job making guests feel welcome.

All told, the event raised $485,000 for NECC's Annual Fund on behalf of the Governor. Lastly, we'd like to express our endless gratitude to our generous sponsors, and to the Dukakis family, without whom none of this would be possible.
