The James L. Maher Center will be honoring Senate President M. Teresa Paiva-Weed for her many years of service to the James L. Maher Center and the members of Aquidneck Island.
The Maher Center’s Annual Cocktail Celebration will be hosted at the Hyatt Regency Newport on Goat Island, Sunday, October 14 from 4:30pm – 7pm. Tickets maybe purchased for $60 per person by calling the Development Office at the Maher Center (401) 846-4600 ext 3120. The evening will be filled with community spirit, food, drinks, silent and live auctions, raffles and entertainment provided by Paul DelNero and his Jazz Quartet.
There will be a special fundraising effort that evening to raise needed funds to purchase a bus for our recreation program to accommodate our clients’ needs.
“This is an opportunity for the community to come together to support an agency that has been offering help to individuals with disabilities on Aquidneck Island for nearly 60 years,” stated Board of Director President, Walter Jachna.
The James L. Maher Center is a Newport based not-for-profit dedicated to providing various daily services to nearly 300 individuals with developmental disabilities. Some of these individuals participate in work programs; over 100 receive residential services; almost 90 children benefit from early intervention and literally thousands of people in the East Bay area reach their destinations because of RIde transportation services.
Proceeds of the event will be used to further the Maher Center mission.
