After a fierce 10-week competition, we witnessed the final battle between the remaining five Charity Warriors as they fought for nonprofits that are changing Boston and beyond.

The Final Challenge was a unique fundraising event full of surprises. There was lively entertainment, games, cocktails, and mouth-watering food from acclaimed chefs.

The competitive spirit was in the air as we celebrated these strong women who are on a mission to make a positive impact in the world. 

The final challenge event was the culmination of a seven-week fundraising accelerator and competition. Selected from a group of fourteen, five amazing nonprofit leaders competed to raise awareness and funds for their causes. All succeeded, but only one was named winner of the 2018 Charity Warriors Challenge.
