More than 400 guests gathered for The American Ireland Fund Boston Young Leaders St. Patrick’s Celebration at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Local Irish group Devri entertained with traditional Irish music. The evening was also highlighted by a silent auction and raffle.

A special thanks to the 2010 event co-chairs John A. Carroll III of Colliers Meredith & Grew, Terence A. Connell of Connell Limited Partnership and Kelly C. McManus of Bernstein Global Wealth Management.

The evening supported The American Ireland Fund's work and provided grants to two organizations: the Children's Sunshine Home in Dublin, Ireland, and the Irish Cultural Centre in Canton, MA.

Assistance from the event will help the Children's Sunshine Home in Dublin establish the LauraLynn House as the first hospice in Ireland for children, annually supporting over 300 families across Ireland.
