Herren Project Participates in Annual 31 Nights of Light

Boston, MA – Beginning in December, Prudential Tower will once again shine bright with the help of local community organizations. Herren Project will flip the switch to light up Boston on December 6, 2021, as part of Prudential Center, Boston’s Annual 31 Nights of Light program. The top of Prudential Tower will beam purple in support of the disease of addiction.

Herren Project is a national addiction nonprofit organization helping individuals, families, communities affected by the disease of addiction. It was started in 2011 by former professional basketball player Chris Herren, who has been in long-term recovery since August 1, 2008. Their goal is to help everyone find the resources and support they deserve to overcome the effects of addiction and to live healthy, fulfilling lives substance-free. They also aim to break the stigma and bring positive awareness nationwide.

“Herren Project is honored to be chosen as one of this year’s recognized nonprofits. There has never been a more important time to shine a light of hope for the millions of lives touched by addiction. We are grateful to The Prudential Tower for standing with us to bring awareness to this important cause on December 6.” – Chris Herren, Founder

The 31 Nights of Light program was introduced in 2008 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.
