Get Your Tickets for the 2016 Business Leaders Breakfast!

On Thursday, April 28, the Irish International Immigrant Center will hold its seventh annual Business Leaders Breakfast featuring as our guest speaker The Honorable Maura Healey, Attorney General. BLB 2016

Since taking office in January 2015, Attorney General Healey has tackled issues touching the lives of residents across Massachusetts, including the heroin and prescription drug abuse epidemic, escalating health care costs, workers’ rights and student loan costs. Her office has assisted with the rollout of several policy initiatives that the Center has supported, including the Earned Sick Time law and Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights. Healey is an advocate for a more equal and inclusive workplace and, as a civil rights attorney, is committed to ensuring that all residents are treated fairly.

The 2016 Business Leaders Breakfast is a great opportunity for you to hear Attorney General Healey, participate in a question and answer session, and network with fellow members of the business and professional community.

A Solas Celebration Thank You!

From Ronnie Millar, Executive Director

On behalf of the Board of the Irish International Immigrant Center, I wish to offer a big thank you to all of our friends and supporters who turned out last Thursday evening at the Seaport Hotel for our 2015 Solas Celebration.

Over four hundred guests joined us to honor the Solas Award recipients: Mayor Marty Walsh; State Senator Linda Dorcena Forry; James Rooney, President of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce; and Robert Coughlin, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council.

We are particularly grateful to our entertainment performers: Master of Ceremonies, Jimmy Tingle; Poet Jamele Adams; and the Celtic music band, “The Cat and the Moon”.

In order to provide our many immigrant services throughout the year to the community, we depend upon the generosity of our corporate and individual sponsors and supporters who make this commitment possible.

Finally, to our IIIC staff and volunteers who worked for almost a year in the planning and carrying out of this very successful celebration – our heartfelt thanks for a job well done!
