The Gala committee (shown in this photo) gathered last night to get the wheels in motion! We are excited to welcome you to the Amber Room this fall and to celebrate SPHERE and the powerhouse behind the nonprofit - Lori Berisford. 

Lori is beyond worthy of SPHERE's Commitment to Service Award. She joined the SPHERE Board in 2012 and has been the nonprofit's Board Chair since 2014. In a given year, Lori does so much "behind the scenes" work to keep things running smoothly. In this time of COVID, the strength and steadfastness of Lori's leadership was highlighted by the challenges she faced daily to assure SPHERE continued to grow and thrive.

SPHERE enables its members to participate in and enjoy a dimension of life that is often missing for people with developmental, cognitive and intellectual disabilities. SPHERE's many programs provide a safe venue for social interaction and development, skill-building, and cultural opportunities through the arts. What's more, SPHERE connects its members to the community in an important and intimate way by partnering with our Town's many nonprofits including the RSO, Ridgefield Playhouse, ACT of Connecticut, Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance, and many more.

Please mark Saturday, November 13 on your calendar!
