Mountain, Dearborn & Whiting LLP will join Worcester County Orthopedics as a lead corporate sponsor for the 60th Annual Emerald Club Gala on Saturday, March 11, 2017. The celebration begins at 6:00 p.m. at the Wachusett Country Club, 197 Prospect Street in West Boylston.
Mountain Dearborn has very strong ties to the Emerald Club, which is dedicated to raising funds for individuals with developmental disabilities and mental health issues. The Club was founded in the 1950’s by several prominent Irish-Americans, including former Worcester Mayor James D. O’Brien, Sr. His son, James D. O’Brien Jr., one of the firm’s partners, served as President of the Club in the 1980’s. The Emerald Club’s current President is another partner, Paul C. Foley.
The Emerald Club’s primary, long-time beneficiary is the Mercy Centre on Chester Street in Worcester, a school and life program for adults with developmental disabilities. In addition, the Club has given generously to the Worcester Public Schools, Veterans, Inc., and other worthy causes.
