Middletown (RI) August 20, 2021– Child & Family hosted their 155th “Surprise” Birthday Soiree on Saturday, August 7, 2021, at Belle Mer in Newport, RI. The entire celebration was gifted to the organization by a generous donor with the intent of creating a fundraiser for the agency. Child & Family was able to raise significant unexpected funds at this special event to support Child & Family’s programs for families, children, and seniors.
For more than 155, years Child & Family has been providing essential services across Rhode Island. Child & Family’s case managers, teachers, foster families, and others have worked tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic to keep families together, children cared for, and seniors safe in their homes. The evening at Belle Mer was a chance to celebrate their accomplishments and heroic efforts.
Child & Family wishes to thank their dedicated community partners who helped to facilitate this opportunity. Thank you to the owners of Fluke Newport, Jeff Callaghan and Geremie Callaghan, and Stasia Callaghan Anthony with Exquisite Events.
