Springtime, a wonderful evening of fashion, fun and culinary delights will take place on Thursday evening, June 7th at the Plaza Ballroom, Seaport Hotel.
This year the Cardinal Cushing Centers will continue their tradition of honoring those who have demonstrated extraordinary vision and compassion for people with disabilities. The Richard Cardinal Cushing Award will be awarded to Jody Nash for her unwavering support of Cardinal Cushing Centers’ mission of changing lives and helping people with disabilities achieve their hopes and dreams. The Franciscan Leadership Award will be given to George Montilio for his guidance and support throughout the years, as well as proudly employing several of Cushing's program participants.
Jody Nash graduated cum laude from St. Lawrence University in 1986. From there she began her career in the finance industry, starting as a public finance analyst at E. F. Hutton in NYC. In 1996 Jody took a break from the workforce in order to care for her three children, Hannah, Sophie and Lucy. Jody’s daughter Sophie is currently a resident at Cardinal Cushing Centers. Focused on Sophie’s education and therapies, Jody learned about the unique and rewarding challenges of having a child with special needs. Jody is dedicated to ensuring students like Sophie are able to succeed in Cushing’s programs for years to come by serving as Chair of the Capital Campaign Committee. Jody’s guidance has helped the Capital Campaign raise almost $9 million to date. Jody and her husband, Tim, reside in Hingham.
Montilio’s Baking Company, a premiere bakery and cake shop, is a combination of family history, European traditions and a desire to create the very best. Founded the same year as the Cardinal Cushing Centers in 1947, Montilio’s has been creating world-class pastries and cakes for some of the most prestigious celebrations. After taking the helm from his father, George also continued a legacy of philanthropy for an organization his parents loved, the Cardinal Cushing Centers. George is now a proud employment partner. George is handing the family legacy of partnering with Cardinal Cushing to his daughter, Elissa, who is a member of the 2018 Cushing Boston Marathon team.
