Boston Young Leaders Summer Social 2015

140 of Boston’s Young Leaders celebrated summer on July 29th, at the beautiful Bostonia Public House, owned by Young Leader Dave Greaney. Glasses were raised to toast the Chairmen and Committee of the YL’s St. Patrick’s Celebration held the previous March.  It was an opportunity to thank them for their work on an event that exceeded all expectations while maintaining its reputation as Boston’s best St. Patrick’s Celebration party.

The American Ireland Fund, New England Director, Steve Greeley spoke about the Fund and its record-breaking 2014 grant-making in Ireland as well as the Fund’s recently completed grant round. He also highlighted over $1m of grants made locally by The American Ireland Fund in the Greater Boston Area over the last several years. Young Leader Chris Hagan outlined Boston plans for September’s “The Irish Run the World” 5K Race, with several Young Leaders offering to serve on the Boston 5K Race Committee.
