Mater Dei Prep's annual gala Feb. 11

The gala will feature cocktails, dinner and entertainment by The Trend as well as online, silent and gift auctions.

This year’s event honors James Shaw IV for his untiring commitment to Mater Dei Prep.

Shaw is a 1976 alumnus, member of the Mater Dei Prep Board of Trustees and a driving force behind the 2015 Save the Seraphs campaign. He is active in the Mater Dei Prep Booster Club and plays the bagpipes at football games and graduations. He is also the chairman of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Polar Plunge for Catholic Education.

He is currently the director, regional lead for Trade Controls U.S./Canada for the Pfizer Inc. pharmaceutical company. In this role, he is responsible for working with customs and other agencies to ensure the security and flow of the company’s products.

Shaw and his wife of 25 years, Sharon, have two daughters, Elizabeth and Erin, who graduated from Mater Dei Prep in 2010 and 2013, respectively.

Only 300 seats are available for the gala, and Feb. 1 is the deadline to reserve a seat. For more information, contact Maria Buzzanco at
