"Community Centers, Inc. is delighted to have David Monn ‘the Architect of Style’ speak this year at our Annual Spring Luncheon," said Carol A. Memishian, CCI Board President. Memishian continued, "Mr. Monn is a talented author, artist and designer, who shares our deep commitment to the people we serve- those living in public housing."

Monn is best known for his broad range of artistry, from intimate private parties to noteworthy events such as the White House State Visit, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Ball and a performance production, “In the Void,” at the Park Avenue Armory in New York. During CCI’s Luncheon, Monn will present his work using a slideshow and be available to autograph copies of his book, priced at $75 each. A portion of book sales will go directly to CCI. "We are very much looking forward to hearing about his extraordinary work on April 6th, and raising awareness for all the work we do in the community,” said Lauren Franciamore (LCSW), Executive Director at CCI. 

CCI offers a combination of educational and therapeutic recreational programs, individual, family, group counseling, and advocacy. As a non-profit social service agency, CCI has served the Greenwich community, particularly those living in subsidized housing, for over 60 years with a mission to build skills that empower clients to overcome educational, social, and economic barriers. 

Former Spring Luncheon keynote speakers include; Lara Spencer, Terry Betteridge & Amor Towles, Mario Buatta, Kevan Hall and Katie Fong Biglin. "I showed my newest collection of gowns last year and it was a wonderful event! A great turn out - the CCI committee, chairs, and organization were all wonderful and easy to work with. It was so much fun," said Biglin, CEO & Creative Director at Katie Fong.
