East Boston Savings Bank employee auction to help Crossroads Family Shelter and Social Centers


East Boston Savings Bank's 23rd annual employee auction raised $25,000 through the sale of employee- and vendor-donated items, including tickets to sporting events, restaurant gift certificates, homemade arts and crafts and toys. This year's auction chair was Paul Cheremka, assistant vice president of residential lending.

The proceeds were divided among four area charities: Crossroads Family Shelter in East Boston, East Boston Social Centers, Help for Abused Women and their Children (HAWC) in Salem and Haven from Hunger in Peabody.

"The auction is an event that our employees look forward to and take great pride in," said EBSB Chairman and CEO Richard J. Gavegnano. "We're proud of the role we play as a good neighbor in the communities we serve and our employees and vendors continue to be supportive of those efforts."
