Boston’s Prudential Tower Shines Blue in Support of Playworks

  1. Updates

Beginning in December, The Shops at Prudential Center and Prudential Tower in Boston will once again shine bright with the help of local community organizations. Playworks Massachusetts will flip the switch to light up Boston on Friday, December 19 as part of the annual 31 Nights of Light program. The top of the Prudential Tower will shine blue in support of the power of play to bring out the best in every kid. 

Playworks believes recess is a healthy, integral part of the school day, where kids carry that positive experience with them beyond the playground. We are coaches, kids, teachers, parents and supporters who believe in the power of play to make kids, schools, and communities stronger. On our playgrounds, everyone plays, everyone belongs, and everyone contributes to the game. Coaches encourage kids to bring out the best in themselves and each other, and kids learn the value of fair play, compassion, and respect. 

The 31 Nights of Light program was introduced in 2009 to celebrate local Boston-area organizations and draw attention to the great work they do in Boston and beyond. Utilizing a state-of-the-art LED lighting system, the 51st floor of the Prudential Tower will change color daily to honor its 29 community partners.
