Two Opportunities to Help Neighbors

Neighbors in Need

Next weekend a concert is planned to benefit DHHS student, Joe Barber. On Saturday, October 24, 2015, from 6:00 - 7:30 PM, Kirsten Arian will perform in concert at the First Congregational Church in Madison.  Donations will be welcomed at the door.

Joe, a senior at DHHS, was seriously injured in a diving accident on August 13, 2015, which has resulted in his inability at present to move his body below his chest.  Joe is presently undergoing rehab at a hospital in Denver that specializes in spinal injuries.

Then, on Friday, November 6, there will be a Special Event for Kathy & Roger Dann, a Madison couple who were both critically injured in a devastating car accident last November in Madison.  After months of hospitalization and several surgeries, Kathy is back at work.  Roger was hospitalized for a much longer period of time, and has now returned home and continues to improve.

As so often happens, their medical and ongoing expenses are quite large, and not all covered by insurance.  It is with that in mind that we are asking the community to come together to show their support at a special event being held at Woodwinds on Friday, November 6 from 5:30 – 9:30pm.    This event is being organized by Anne McCarthy, former Madison Chamber of Commerce Board member (NMCC is a Chamber member), with the help of several of other board members.

Tickets are $50 per person, and include complimentary hors d'oeuvres, wine and soft drinks (cash bar) and must be purchased by October 30th (no ticket sales at the door).   Please make checks payable to Kathy Dann and mail to:  Anne McCarthy, 10 Johnson Lane, Madison, CT, 06443.

Silent auction items are also being sought (gift baskets, spa treatments, event or theater tickets, etc.).  Please contact Anne if you would like to donate or purchase tickets    This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
