Community Connections’ Annual Gala a Heartwarming Success
South Yarmouth, MA – Friday, October 4th, was an evening of fun, fare, and philanthropy to benefit Community Connections at Wequassett Resort in Chatham. The annual fundraiser featured a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by dinner and an exciting live auction, artfully hosted by award-winning auctioneer, Kathy Kingston. Corporate sponsors for this year’s event included Rogers & Gray Insurance, Cape Destinations, Cape Cod Five, HUB International, Gilberti & Associates, PC. Heritage Print Solutions, Yarmouth Wine & Spirits, Full Spectrum Music, and Chatham Candy Manor provided generous in-kind donations. Businesses throughout the region kindly donated items and gift certificates for the silent auction. Attendees viewed a heartwarming video demonstrating how Community Connections’ services and therapies have improved the quality of life of the adults served.
One board member spoke to remind everyone about the value therapy has played in all our lives at one time or another. One of the adults Community Connections serves joined her at the podium to speak about how physical therapy has improved her balance and allows her to work more effectively, as well as gaining more enjoyment in her free time so she can go shopping, to the library or walking outside when the weather is nice. She credited Community Connections and her therapist for improving the quality of her life.
