Founders ($2,500 – $4,999)
The Melrose Coop Foundation, a charitable legacy of Melrose Cooperative Bank, is an integral part of our community and a beloved sponsor of Melrose Grad Night. Some years ago, when the founding members came to see what Grad Night was all about, they fell in love with our Cash Cube (because money) and stayed in love with the concept of keeping kids safe on a night that can be pretty dangerous. Words cannot express how thankful we are for the very generous grant and we promise to put it to good use entertaining the very fine class of 2021!


Platinum ($1,000 – $2,499)
Kim and Charles Maggio, of Melrose Family Optometry at 490 Main Street in Melrose are proud to sponsor our community event. They value the hard work of the Grad Night crew and recognize that a substance-free party is not just the right thing for their own kids, but for our entire community. With a student graduating in 2021, Grad Night means more to them now than ever! As 20 year residents of the Melrose community, chances are great that if they haven’t looked into your eyes, they’ve gazed at one of your neighbors or friends. Stop by or call 781-665-0897. Their full service optical store features eye exams, glasses, and contact lenses. Tell them we sent you!
The Aveni Family has sponsored us for a $1,000 grant from Cummings Foundation each year since 2014, when their son Aaron attended our very first event, Grad Night 2014. We are extremely grateful to Melissa, Mike, and Cummings for their loyal support of this important community-wide event. With more than 10 million square feet of prime commercial space ranging from 150 square feet to 300,000 square feet, Cummings can accommodate your business whether you need an executive office, healthcare facility, laboratory, retail storefront, medical office, or warehouse.
The Melrose High School PTO understands the importance of Melrose Grad Night and although they rely on donations to operate, they know our graduating seniors are priceless. It was in a lonely PTO meeting that our founder, Michelle Carson, raised her shakey hand to volunteer to run Grad Night and our subcommittees are made up of current MHS parents and alumni. We are grateful for the close relationship we share with the PTO (the only high school PTO in the Middlesex league, we hear!) and we look forward to many more years of working together to keep the kids safe.


Gold ($500 – $999)
