Mentoring's Night Out: In Memory of Luke Boisi

For the past 14 years, Mentor New York has hosted Mentoring’s Night Out: In Memory of Luke Boisi, which gathers several hundred young professionals for a night of celebration and recognition of the importance of mentoring. In the last fourteen years, almost 3,500 people have celebrated with us raising close to $800,000.

Previously known as the Luke Boisi Memorial Benefit, Mentoring's Night Out is a unique event that raises awareness about the importance of mentoring and celebrates the vibrant life of Luke Boisi who tragically passed away at the age of 21. Luke was the brother of Zachary Boisi, the former Director of Mentor New York, and the son of Geoffrey Boisi, the founder of MENTOR - the National Mentoring Partnership.
