Thanks to all who supported – and enjoyed – our Spirit of the Port Luncheon on March 3 at the Penn’s Landing Hilton.

Our honoree, Eugene Mattioni, is not only a distinguished attorney, but also a former merchant mariner and a tireless supporter of the maritime community.

Seamen’s Church Institute is proud to have an opportunity to honor Gene and to pass along his message: “ABOVE ALL, BE KIND!”

L-R, Eugene Mattioni, spirit of the Port Honoree; Honorable Ronald R. Donatucci, Register of Wills; Mark Squilla, District 1 Councilman; Captain David K. Cuff, Seamen’s Church Institute President; and Helene Pierson, Seamen’s Church Institute Executive Director
