2019 Alumni Dinner Celebrates Award Winners and Welcomes Boyle Trophy
Our Alumni Dinner was a great success and those in attendance enjoyed the wonderful night. We also had a special guest in attendance, the Boyle Trophy, to celebrate the 50th and 60th anniversary of the last two St. Bon's Boyle Trophy championship teams.

The evening also allowed us to celebrate our Alumni Award Winners Fr. Bill Brown, S.J. '45 and Michael O'Keefe '13.

Father Brown, had a very touching speech after he was awarded the Alumnus of the Year Award.

Mr. O'Keefe had his Mom, Gail Dicks-O'Keefe accept the Magis Award on his behalf as he was not able to make the dinner as he is currently attending the University of Oxford as St. Bon's 28th Rhodes Scholar. Thankfully Mr. O'Keefe recorded his speech when he was home this summer to play at the dinner.
