Catholic Charities Laboure Center in South Boston held its 33rd Annual Spring Benefit on April 30 to celebrate the organization's contribution to the community. The event was held at John Hancock Financial in South Boston's Seaport District and featured the presentation of the Jack Shaughnessy Service Award to the Massachusetts Port Authority, in recognition of its support of the Laboure Center.

Proceeds from the event went to benefit the Laboure Center, as it enters its 108th year of service, and the programs and services it provides to the community including mentoring and tutoring, after school programs, counseling and family intervention, elder outreach, job training, and recovery connections programs.

Pictured during the presentation of the Shaughnessy Award are: Sister Maryadele Robinson, director of the Laboure Center; Laboure Center advisory board member, Patrick J. Shaughnessy; Massport CEO, Thomas P. Glynn; and Debbie Rambo, president of Catholic Charities of Boston.
