Before getting down to business at its annual meeting last night, the board of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston paid tribute to longtime supporter Myra Kraft. Among the 200 or so people expected at the Westin Copley Place were Myra’s husband, Pats owner Robert Kraft, and the couple’s four sons, Mayor Tom Menino, United Way chief executive Michael Durkin, Suffolk Construction’s John Fish, Bank of America’s Bob Gallery and Alicia Verity, Boston Foundation’s Paul Grogan, Jay Hooley of State Street Corp. , Barry Shrage and Zamira Korff of Combined Jewish Philanthropies, Massachusetts Convention Center Authority’s Jim Rooney, the Catered Affair’s Holly Safford, and Jon Davis of the Davis Companies. BGCB board members Richard Voke and Dana Smith spoke about Myra, as did Lisa Rodriguez, a senior at Lesley University who’s a beneficiary of the Myra H. Kraft Giving Back Scholarship Fund. At the end of the meeting, the unsung hero award was given to Jill Goldweitz, the Boys & Girls Clubs’ events director.
