The Annual Christmas Auction & Dinner was held at the Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport on the evening of December 3. Guild of St. Irene President Kristin Maxwell P’25 and Auction Co-chairs Julie Mulvey P’17,‘21,‘26 and Kelly Stenberg P’25 did a fabulous job of leading a large group of St. Sebastian’s moms to plan, assemble items, decorate and create a festive night. Special thanks to our auctioneers, Joe Amorosino P’24, Scott Mutryn P’25,’26, and Wendy Thurmond P’25,’28 for moving the evening on and keeping it fun. Several students were in attendance to help sell raffle tickets and in the case of Gianluca Centola ‘24, to introduce and showcase the chess board he made in the Innovation Lab as a live auction item, after previously making a dartboard last year.
The biggest highlight of the night came when attendees committed the necessary funds to meet the goal to help support the Teach and Be Taught Fund 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.
