Last Thursday, five hundred people gathered on a cold winter night to honor three bright lights in our community. Vin Ryan, Chairman of Schooner Capital and founder of Schooner Foundation; Beverly Edgehill, formerly of the Partnership and current Vice President of Organizational Development at TJX; and Kevin Kelley, CEO of Ironshore Inc. were this year’s recipients of IIIC’s Solas Awards. Named for the Gaelic word for “light”, the award recognizes community leaders whose work inspire. The evening included exciting performances by Ciarán Nagle of The Three Irish Tenors and his wife Tara Novak and a group from the Christmas Revels. The celebration was a fantastic way to kick off the holiday season.
