In August, the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism orchestrated a spectacular celebration under the Fenway Park lights—STARS of the Spectrum 25th Anniversary Concert. This inclusive event brought nearly 5,000 people together for a night filled with joy, music, and camaraderie. The on-field musical extravaganza not only showcased the talents of autism self-advocate performers but also featured a star-studded lineup, including special guests such as Doug Flutie and the Flutie Brothers Band, Shawn Stockman from Boys to Men, and Kodi Lee, the winner of the 14th Season of America’s Got Talent.
A lively group of nearly 50 from Lifeworks, comprising individuals, families, and dedicated staff, boarded a charter bus from the Westwood office for a lively journey to Fenway. The ride not only provided a convenient means of transportation but also offered everyone a chance to unwind, engage in meaningful conversations, and connect with others from the vibrant Lifeworks community.
Fenway Park provided an iconic backdrop for a night of celebration. From the stands, there was cheers, applause, and dancing as attendees enjoyed the stellar musical performances and indulged in ballpark food favorites, creating lasting memories.
Lifeworks presence at this milestone celebration echoes its commitment to inclusivity, fostering connections, and creating moments of joy for everyone in the Lifeworks family. The event was a real testament to the shared values of all the organizations that came together to celebrate the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation under the Fenway lights.
