Thank You for Making Our 9th Annual Breakfast Fundraiser A Great Success!

Our annual event brought many wonderful caring people together to help raise money for our Summer Camp program. Fr. John, our Board of Directors, the Salesian staff, and our members want to thank you very much for joining us and making the morning memorable. We are grateful for your generous contributions and support of our kids. Thank you to our public officials it was an honor to have you join us at this year’s event, Governor Charles Baker, Mayor Martin Walsh, Senator Joseph Boncore, Representative Adrian Madaro, and Councilors Sal LaMattina, Anthony Zambuto, and Annissa Essaibi-George.

Congratulations to Carlo Basile, the recipient of the Don Bosco Award and to the Community Service Award recipient, Mr. Richard Goldberg of Logan Communications for their generosity and support of the members of our Club and the youth of East Boston.

Congratulations to Elaina Psomos, Youth of the Year. Elaina, a sophomore at Winthrop High School has been a Club member for ten years.
