Like so many other organizations across our nation, the COVID-19 pandemic has required that CCARC cancel our spring fundraising event rescheduled for May 14. In keeping with CDC guidelines and our Governor’s mandates, Connecticut residents are being asked to strictly observe social distancing until at least May 20. Hosting a large gathering anytime over the next couple of months is clearly not advisable. In addition, the funds raised through this event are applied to our current fiscal year ending June 30.
All of us were looking forward to a “star-studded” evening celebrating the many ways our friends in the community “Make Dreams Happen” for people with disabilities. Although we are saddened to not have the opportunity to share this special time together, we have come to appreciate these words…“It is often in the darkest skies that we see the brightest stars.”
Every one of our event sponsors who had already committed their support graciously offered to have their financial contribution applied toward our services. We are most grateful for their kindness and generosity. They are truly shining like stars!
