The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. hosts events that educate, raise needed funds and promote cultural understanding. Individuals, businesses, foundations and organizations have the opportunity to become sponsors and “investors” in The ILC programs while enjoying a special evening together. Sponsors are listed in The ILC printed materials and are invited to visit the school to meet with students and see their investment hard at work.
One of The ILC’s longest running events, the yearly Golf Classic provides supporters with a fun-filled day of golf, lunch, dinner and many opportunities to win prizes as well as support The ILC’s efforts to give immigrants a voice. The 2020 Golf Classic has been cancelled due to COVID-19 safety concerns. The 2021 Golf Classic will be held Monday, June 7, 2021, at Pine Brook Country Club in Weston, MA.
Every year, The ILC honors Massachusetts business owners at the Barry M. Portnoy Immigrant Entrepreneur Awards Benefit. The Awards highlight immigrants’ contributions to neighborhood revitalization, business growth, and scientific and technological innovation.
It’s a dream come true for many Massachusetts immigrants. A new citizen swearing-in, or naturalization, ceremony is the fruition of a long journey and a lot of hard work on the part of newcomers to this country. The ILC sponsors a ceremony annually in Malden, MA.
