    BCCA News

    Last April, the BCCA was granted a temporary 3-month Entertainment License by the Town of Brookline with the help of the many BCCA supporters and neighbors who appeared at our Entertainment License hearing. This temporary license has allowed us to continue to hold evening events, such as our weekly Salsa parties, live music concerts, and more.

    Next month, the BCCA will have an Entertainment License Hearing at City Hall in Brookline to obtain an improved and more permanent Entertainment License. We need your support over the next several weeks to help make this license a reality. You may show your support by appearing at a preliminary hearing next week that will extend our temporary license until next month. The hearing will be held at City Hall in Brookline on August 10th at 8:25 p.m. You may also help by writing letters of support to demonstrate your backing of our mission and track record here at the BCCA. Letters of support and general inquiries about our Entertainment License may be directed to Dan Marshall via e-mail or phone at (617) 970-1444, and stay tuned for more information about the September hearing.

    The BCCA also still needs your support for the Building Fund to reach or goal of raising $100,000. For more information about how you can help, please e-mail or call Vlad Selsky, Director of Development, at (617) 233-4647.
