Master of Ceremonies

Champion of Change

Our honoree, former Congressman Patrick Kennedy, has made significant advances in reducing stigma for people struggling with mental health and addictions. We are grateful for the work he has done to improve access to treatment for illnesses of the brain.

Held in Woonsocket, the heart of our service area—a city where people are proud, engaged and good to their neighbors—we will celebrate the local community with an art installation by Riverzedge Arts.

At a time when there is an increase in suicides and overdoses with the opioid crisis, we want to convey the importance of reaching out to those who struggle. Our message, “If you know someone struggling, reach out,” speaks to many situations depending on one’s point of view.

And, of course, this is a benefit event for Community Care Alliance. We hope to raise $100,000 to support the important work that we do to help people experiencing times of hardship to grow stronger emotionally, physically and economically. Community Care Alliance operates over 40 programs, providing an array of family-centered services.
