Thank you to the Event Committee for their wonderful support. Steve Greeley, New England Director of The American Ireland Fund thanked everyone and spoke about the amazing programs in Ireland that have been supported through their generosity to the Promising Ireland Campaign.

Among some of the guests attending were Bob Sheridan, President of SBLI and his wife Jean; Tom O’Neill III, CEO of O’Neill and Associates and his wife Shelly; John Hailer, President and CEO of Natixis; John Drew, President and CEO of the Drew Company and his wife Kathy; Andrew Maher, Managing Director of Equity Office Properties and his wife Amanda; Matt Power, Chief Innovation and Strategic Relationship Officer at Chartis and his wife Margaret; and Steve Greeley, New England Director of The American Ireland Fund.

Many Boston Young Leaders also attended, including, among others, Cape Committee Members Maura and Ryan Fitzpatrick; Shane and Jessica Early; Chris and Brenda Hagan; Joanna Litsas; Kate Sheridan; and Ryan Heald.

Thank you to all who attended, we look forward to seeing you next summer on the Cape.
