Just a week after her sold-out appearance at the Opera House, Hillary Clinton was back in town to receive an award from the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston at its annual Big in Boston fund-raiser. The organization gave the former secretary of state its “Believe in Girls” award in recognition of her career achievements and “commitment to improving the lives of women and girls.” Sharon McNally, president of Camp Harbor View Foundation, was also honored at the event, which was attended by Clinton staffer Huma Abedin, event co-chairs Jack Connors and Bryan Rafanelli, Hizzoner Marty Walsh, Police Commissioner Billy Evans, Big Sister CEO Deborah Re, Elaine and Jerry Schuster, Angela Menino, Democratic congressional candidate Dan Koh and wife Amy, and emcee Lisa Hughes.
