AWHS Donors gather for Williams Society Kick-off event at Cagney’s

Last Evening, President Dennis M. Duggan, Jr., Esq. '70, and Trustees Anthony L. Agnitti '80 and Stephen F. Nazzaro '82 hosted an intimate event to celebrate the formation of “The Williams Society” comprised of those donors who contribute $1,000 or more to the School’s Annual Fund each year.

The event was held at Cagney’s Pub in Quincy, graciously hosted and catered by the owner, alum Mark DiBona '83. This evening was an opportunity for the School to express deep gratitude and appreciation for its supporters’ commitment, to ask that they continue to make Williams a priority and to seek their help in identifying others who might join them.  Major Gift and Alumni Relations Officer Tina Cahill commented, “It was a great evening to thank and acknowledge the supporters of Archbishop Williams High School in the hopes that we continue to grow that support for the benefit of our students and school.” 

President Duggan and Trustees Agnitti and Nazarro each briefly addressed the audience thanking them for their partnership and asking them to help build the Society by introducing them to individuals who would be open to learning more about the Mission of Archbishop Williams. Said President Duggan, “What a wonderful evening.  Our alumnus Mark DiBona was a perfect host, Cagney’s was a perfect venue and we were surrounded by people who love Archbishop Williams, all it represents and all it can be. There was a palpable energy to the event and a real sense of the Williams Community as we had school administration, faculty, trustees, alumni and parents all come together for a common cause. The Williams Society is off to a great start.”

AWHS Principal Dr. Michael Volonnino also addressed the audience, giving examples of the great things that the students are doing on a daily basis.  Members attending the event received an engraved glass set to celebrate the formation of the Williams Society.

The Williams Society is a circle of donors who contribute $1,000 or more to the Williams Annual Fund.  For more information about how you can make Archbishop Williams a part of your philanthropy, please contact Major Gift and Alumni Relations Officer, Lindsay Simpson.
