On Thursday, June 24, 2010, Phoenix Houses of New England will honor Joseph J. MarcAurele, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, The Washington Trust Company, with the New England Public Service Award, to be conferred at a luncheon from 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m. at The Westin Providence. Established in 2001 to honor exceptional men and women whose achievements and service to society inspire young people struggling to reclaim disordered lives, the annual event has become the most successful award luncheon in southern New England. Previous honorees represent the most important businesses in Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts. Attendance at the luncheon is anticipated to exceed 400 persons.
Before assuming his position at The Washington Trust Company, a long-time and generous corporate supporter of Phoenix House, Mr. MarcAurele served as Chairman, President and CEO of Citizens Bank Rhode Island. In that capacity he was responsible for a major grant in support of renovations to the Learning Center at Phoenix Academy at Wallum Lake.
