The Annual Christmas Auction & Dinner was held at the InterContinental Hotel in Boston on the evening of December 4. Guild of St. Irene President Julie Mulvey P’17,‘21,‘26 and Auction Co-chairs Grace White P’18,‘22 and Susan Weiss P’23 did a fabulous job of leading a huge army of St. Sebastian’s moms to plan, assemble items, decorate and create a festive night. Special thanks to our auctioneers, Marty Kane ‘84, P’22 and Joe Amorosino P’24 for keeping the evening fun. Several students were in attendance to sing, assist with set up and in the case of Gianluca Centola ‘24, to introduce and showcase the dartboard he made in the Innovation Lab as a live auction item.
The biggest highlight of the night came when the dream of constructing The Oratory - an outdoor prayer space on campus - moved closer to reality when all of the necessary funds were committed during our Raise the Paddle.
The entire night was filled with joy, providing a wonderful opportunity for parents and friends of the St. Sebastian’s community to gather during the Christmas season. We are eternally grateful to all those who contributed to making this evening a tremendous success, from the donors, sponsors and advertisers to those who attended and bid.
