Over 200 guests joined the Sisters of Charity (Halifax) and Board Members of the Elizabeth Seton Residence at the Wellesley Country Club to celebrate their annual Meet the Need dinner. Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception followed by dinner and were entertained by all time favorites, The Winiker Jazz Trio and pianist, Sunny Lee. The guest of honor was Tory DeFazio III, whose involvement with the Sisters of Charity (Halifax) began with his early education at Saint Joseph’s Academy in Wellesley Hills. Tory continues his commitment to the Sisters today. A native of Wellesley, Tory has always been active in Town Government and other local organizations. The Mistress of Ceremonies was Wellesley’s own Kelley Tuthill, VP of Communications and Pubic Relations at Regis College and former WCVB reporter.
