HOPE NIGHT 2017
Hope Night 2017 Gala Co-chairs Parnian Emami and Heidi Desporteris hosted a lovely evening on Saturday, April 22nd.
We are grateful to our Guest of Honor Joe Furey, Chief Meteorologist for FOX CT-TV and CBS Radio Hartford. Joe is a long time friend of The Cove and made the evening and Live Auction a fun and exciting event!
The Cove honored Bruce McIntyre for 18 years of volunteerism and leadership as Chair of our Annual Run for The Cove. He was presented with a Certificate of recogniton of his efforts by Senator Blumenthal and received a hand made plaque created by our current chairman Kevin Kearney, acknowleging his great efforts on behalf of The Cove.
We thank our speaker Joshua Caruso for sharing his personal experience with The Cove. He conveyed the true meaning of resiliency through his moving speech.
All of the 7 Cove sites and Chippens Hill Middle School "Good Grief" program participated in the "Resiliency Project" that was on display at the gala. Our thanks to the youth who contributed their artwork for the event.
Our thanks also to Simon Etzel for underwriting the video footage and Aetna for editing it into a child's eye view of Camp Erin CT.
You can still order from ONE HOPE, the company that hosted the Wine Tasting - 15% of Sales will Benefit The Cove as well as a portion going to other children's charities. Ashley Camera from ONE HOPE is also a Camp Erin CT volunteer. Click here for more information.
CFormer Cove Board Member and current Big Buddy Leader at Camp Erin CT, John Plourde and his lovely wife Bernice who is also a Big Buddy, attended the gala along with many friends.
