St. Mary’s College would like to recognize a proud alum that has gone above and beyond to assist his former school.
Joe Maione, through his position at CIBC Wood Gundy and his own business, Maione Collectables, donated seventeen thousand dollars this past school year to various St. Mary’s College entities.
Mr. Maione’s largest donation came at the school’s annual Pub Night Fundraiser which wound up garnering $11,000 to the SMC Booster Club. The club funds a variety of activities at the school.
“As part of investing in our future, young people are our best asset and St. Mary’s College continues to develop great values. As a young student I experienced strong mentoring and am happy to invest in the future by supporting character building and team building through sports and scholarships. I continue to support the SMC Boosters and alumni annually and encourage others to follow,” said Maione.
“Joe is a terrific example of how supportive members of our alumni can be. His efforts are greatly appreciated by the teachers who coach our sports teams, and the students who benefit from his generosity,” said St. Mary’s College Principal Danny Viotto.
Mr. Maione also contributed $2,500 to the SMC Athletic Awards banquet, $1,000 to the Senior Boys basketball team and $2,500 in the form of two scholarships at the SMC graduation ceremony.
