Festive food and drinks added to the night's success

Richard and Lisa Greene hosted a very special cocktail reception at their home, to appreciate members of our Circle of Hope Giving Community. Many TCR supporters gathered together at this memorable event, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Centerpoint Advisors, The Betsy Hotel, and the Plutzik Goldwasser Family Foundation.

Everyone listened to a beautiful talk by Courtney Silva, whose father died when she was age six. Courtney is now 25 and she spoke of being honored and excited to work in our Sunday group at TCR, supporting six- and seven-year-old children who have experienced the death of a parent or sibling. Having once been supported by The Children’s Room, she now gives back to families at TCR as a program volunteer.

An exciting moment of the evening came when names were drawn for the raffle – two lucky guests won a gift certificate for a wonderful trip to The Betsy Hotel in Florida! Philanthropy programs at the Betsy in Southbeach make this beachfront hotel a model of community partnership.  We appreciate The Betsy’s commitment to good works and the generous trip they donated to The Children’s Room.

The event marked the gathering of our many generous Circle of Hope donors. Great food and camaraderie made it a night to remember.
