St. John School Thanks Everyone for Supporting the Seeds of Love Fundraiser

On Sunday May 18th, the St. John School Community, administrators, faculty, and parents gathered for the Seeds of Love Spring Dinner at Filippo Ristorante in the North End.  The dinner benefited 4-year-old Annie Flaherty, a current K3 student at St. John School.

The second floor function space at Filippo’s was transformed into a delightful spring garden.  All those attending were treated to a delicious dinner and enjoyed warm feelings of friendship and community. The event was a tremendous success and drew in over two hundred people.

Seeds of Love Spring Dinner organizers, Marilyn Frissora, Angela Mantone, Daniella Frattaroli and Kathleen Sviokla wish to extend a special thank you to:
