Our Third Annual Fundraiser 

Gratitude Moment!!

When was the event? Thursday night, October 19th – Danversport Yacht Club

A huge THANK-YOU to everyone who joined us in person or in spirit, donated or purchased silent auction and raffle items, set up and/or manned display and check-in/check-out tables, took pictures, danced in the “flash mob”, and sang and moved to the MOST FANTASTIC music provided by The MERJ!

To those of you who worked behind the scenes and in the forefront to help create such an important financially supportive event for us, our heartfelt appreciation belongs to you!

If you couldn’t be with us, it’s not too late to make a gift and support our programs!
