Solas Awards Honor Local Community Leaders

Named from the Gaelic word for “light,” the Solas Awards are presented to leaders whose work in their communities touch and inspire. We are pleased to honor three individuals whose spirit of giving back to the community embodies true leadership. On December 6th, at the JFK Library and Museum, the IIIC’s annual Solas Awards Celebration will honor Kevin Kelley, CEO of Ironshore; Beverly Edgehill Ed. D., Vice President of Organizational Development of the TJX Companies; and Vincent Ryan, Chairman of Schooner Capital LLC.

Prior to the award ceremony, a reception will take place in the stunning pavilion featuring gourmet New England fare. Music and entertainment includes the talented Christmas Revels, Boston City Singers Drum Corps, along with Ciarán Nagle, one of the original Three Irish Tenors, who will be accompanied by his wife, renowned singer and violinist, Tara Novak.

Museum exhibits will also remain open for guests to enjoy during the reception.
Proceeds from the Solas Awards Celebration allow IIIC to assist people from all nations with access to free immigration legal services, social services, citizenship assistance, ESOL classes, job readiness programs and learning exchange programs between the United States and Ireland.
