A few Wellesley sightings at recent charitable events:
Chief DeLorie supports Special Olympics in Orlando
Wellesley Fire Chief Rick DeLorie spent recent vacation time volunteering for the Special Olympics in Orlando at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The event, which DeLorie described as “an amazing organizational effort,” involved some 6,000 athletes. DeLorie was recruited by a friend on the Special Olympics staff that he met during a training program.
Joslin Diabetes Center’s night at the Pops
Wellesley residents Peter Seibert and Marjorie Nealon Seibert earlier in June attended Joslin Diabetes Center’s night at the Pops at Boston Symphony Hall where 26-year-old Duxbury resident, Kevin Coakley, received the Frank and Jean Ring Memorial Award in the Fight Against Diabetes. The event included a pre-concert seated dinner and a ceremony to present Coakley with his award as well as hear remarks from Joslin’s President and CEO, Dr. Roberta Herman and others. Conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra, Keith Lockhart, also said a few words and sang “High Hopes” with the guests before the show.
Golfing for the Y
The West Suburban YMCA in Newton raised nearly $90,000 through its annual golf tournament at Belmont Country Club. The event supports the Y and its programs “that enable families of all backgrounds to develop healthy habits, build confidence and foster strong relationships.”
