In his role as managing partner and head of capital markets at New York City-based Laidlaw & Company, James “Jimmy” Ahern has led the firm to strong growth in the health care investment sector. Active in his local community, one of the ways James “Jim” Ahern gives back is by serving on the board of overseers with Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Massachusetts Bay when he isn’t working at Laidlaw.
Last January at Cape Cod Beer, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts recently held its inaugural Celebration of Mentoring event. More than 100 mentors, BBBS advocates, and local leaders turned out to celebrate the occasion, which consisted of an evening of raffle drawings, dinner, and gaming.
The big winner on the night was Mary Marsters, whose raffle ticket was chosen in the grand prize drawing. She won tickets to attend a Boston Red Sox game and stay at the famous Hotel Commonwealth. Overall, the event was able to raise $1,200 in support of BBBS programs.
