CCF's Vision of Hope Celebratory Dinner Raises $60,000:

Connecting for Children & Families (CCF) held the Vision of Hope celebratory dinner on October 30 at 5:30pm at Kirkbrae Country Club in Lincoln, RI. The event raised $60,000 to support CCF's critical programs.

The event was chaired by John C. Gregory, President and CEO of the Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce, and honored Tony Maione, retiring President and CEO of United Way of Rhode Island with the CCF designated Visionary Award. In addition, a keynote address was delivered by US Senator Jack Reed.

This event was made possible by the generosity of Amica Insurance, National Grid, BankRI, Customers Bank, Landmark Medical Center, Navigant Credit Union, and many other faithful supporters of CCF's work in the community.

Proceeds from the evening will support CCF's programs, such as Parents as Teachers, a nationally-recognized home visiting program for families with small children and our Hope Street Early Learning Center, which offers a safe, nurturing environment for toddlers and preschoolers. Additional programs include workforce training, after-school enrichment and basic needs assistance with food, clothing and heating.
