Each year for almost ten years my family has hosted a fundraiser for FARA, something we like to call, “An evening to find a cure.” This year’s theme was happiness. The event took place on September 22nd at the Owenego Inn and Beach Club in Branford, CT. The evening was filled with psychic readings, reiki sessions, tons of fun raffles, and dinner catered by Outback Steakhouse. The happiness theme was sprinkled all throughout the evening. The center pieces on the tables included books about happiness which were party favors for people to take home. In addition, speeches were given throughout the night by special guests on what happiness means to them. It was a magical night with 230-240 attendees.
The event took months to plan. We are luckily enough to have the best neighbors in the world who make up the fundraising committee. Preparing for the event took many long hours, but it was worth it. It is always worth it knowing we are one step closer to finding a cure. We forgot about all the hard work as soon as we saw the room filled with happiness, support, and hope. A room full of friends.Add a comment
