after a successful career start in football operations, Dusty Rhodes came to Boston with an idea: she could help organizations get their message to the right people by capitalizing on the universal desire to gather and celebrate. Almost four decades later, her firm, Conventures, Inc., has reshaped market- ing and fundraising with enduring events like the Tufts Health Plan 10K Run for Women. She established Boston's inter- national stature with three successful harbor-rocking Tall Ship festivals and deepened the sense of community with the Boston Athletic Association's Tribute to mark the first anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing. What began with a young woman's vision has become New England's largest special event plan- ning firm with 5,000 events to its credit. The tall, athletic girl who came to Boston found a welcoming playing field in her happily adopted New England home. We spoke to her in a recent interview. 60 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | f a l l 2 0 1 5 Making Things Happen C A R O LY N E L L I S writer B R I A N S M I T H photographer Face to Face with Dusty Rhodes, Founder and CEO of Conventures, Inc.,
