BOSTON (AP) — Former Boston Mayor Tom Menino will be recognized by the Boston Bar Foundation for his 20 years of leadership with the 2014 Public Service Award.

The award will be presented to Menino during the foundation’s John & Abigail Adams Benefit, Greater Boston’s largest fund-raiser for legal services. The majority of proceeds from the event fund direct grants to community organizations that provide help to people in need.

More than 900 lawyers, members of the business community and other guests are expected to attend the Jan. 25 event at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.
