Over 200 supporters, volunteers, and friends came together on December 7, 2016 to celebrate Youth Enrichment Services (YES) and its achievements throughout the year. The event, held at Fenway Park’s State Street Pavilion, was an especially meaningful night as long-time YES supporter, Bernie Weichsel, was awarded the YES Lifetime Achievement award.
Bernie is president of BEWI Productions and a pioneer of the snowsports industry. He has been an outstanding supporter of YES for more than 40 years. YES co-founder, Mary Williams, presented the Lifetime Achievement award and reminded the crowd that Bernie once remarked, “We should all do what we can – whether it’s through contributions, good deeds, or just helping other less fortunate – to enjoy some of the joy of being outdoors. Out with selfishness: in with sharing.”
Bernie’s generosity has provided thousands of youth at YES with the opportunity to experience the outdoors and benefit from its enrichment programs. Thank you, Bernie, for four decades of service to the young people of YES!
