The Rotary Club of Reading has secured early gold sponsor commitments from local businesses for the Tenth Annual Reading Fall Street Faire on Sunday, September 9, from noon to 5 pm.
 
Event Chair Sheila Clarke gives credit to Street Faire sponsors, acknowledging that they are the core of the success of putting on an event of this size. This year’s early gold sponsor commitments are from Beacon Consulting and CTA Construction, Lahey Health, Pediatric Dental Associates, Salem Five and Sartell Electric.
 
Beacon Consulting Group Inc. is a national consulting firm providing a wide range of consulting services to financial, real estate,  architectural, government, surety and insurance companies.  They have offices in Massachusetts, New York and California.  
 
Dennis O’Neill is president and owner of Beacon.  A native of Medford, he established the company in New York City in 2003 and returned to Massachusetts to open additional offices in Medford and later in California.  
 
“Although Beacon has expanded into a national consulting practice, we still depend upon the local businesses in the community in order to deliver the high-quality service our clients demand,” said O’Neill. “The Rotary Club and the Reading Fall Street Faire promote this type of collaboration.”
 
In his spare time, Dennis coaches youth sports and along with Pat Tompkins of CTA, he is co-founder of the Middlesex Multisport Athletic Club, which promotes amateur athletics, road races and triathlons in the community. 
 
Dennis and Pat have also partnered to utilize their entrepreneurial skills in establishing Beacon Films, a film production company. To date they have produced Fairhaven which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and Manhattan Romance, which was screened at the New York, New Orleans and New Hampshire Film Festivals.
 
“Producing films is very similar to the construction industry – you start with a plan and idea and work with numerous parties and a budget to create the end product,” said O’Neill.
 
A proponent of community involvement, Dennis is pleased to be a sponsor of the Reading Fall Street Faire and extends many thanks to all involved in coordinating this great event. Dennis resides in Reading with his wife Laura and three children.  For more information about Beacon Consulting, visit www.beacon.ws.

Pat is a member of the Town of Reading Building Committee and he currently serves on the Board of Directors of EMARC.  Pat and his wife Marianne are involved in multiple community and charitable endeavors. They have three children in the Reading Public School System. 
 
Pat is co-founder with Dennis O’Neill of the Middlesex Multisport Athletic Club and Beacon Films.
 
“As long-time residents, we have been regulars at the Town Faire for the past nine years.  It’s a great community event where we catch up with friends old and new.  We wanted to thank the Rotary Club for stepping up and taking over the Faire and we are proud to be sponsors,” said Pat and Marianne. CTA and Beacon Consulting are co-sponsors of the Tailgate Party.
