September 14 @ 11:00 am$150
Community Centers, Inc. of Greenwich (“CCI”) will hold a “Flowers, Fashion & Footwear” Fall Luncheon on Thursday, Sept. 14, at the Belle Haven Club.
Themed around the designer shoe collection of “The Garden Guru,” Kent Russell, the event will feature floral arrangements created by local garden clubs, florists and artists “inspired” by a pair of Mr. Russell’s shoes.
Each display will be available for purchase. Also for sale will be floral-themed art, note cards, and photography, unique handbags, jewelry from the CCI UpCycled Button Project, and other exciting fashion accessories. Pots and arrangements created by Mr. Russell will also be for sale.
All proceeds from “Flowers, Fashion & Footwear” will benefit CCI’s education and support programs which serve more than 1000 Greenwich residents including at-risk youth, families, senior citizens, and individuals with special needs.
CCI provides: Educational Programs, Homework Clubs, Summer Education and Recreation Programs for Children and Families, Senior Programs, Counseling and Therapy, Special Needs Adult and Youth Groups.
The most recent Greenwich United Way Needs Assessment Report found that approximately 20% or 1 in every 5 of Greenwich families live either below the poverty line or in a low-income household. CCI relies exclusively on donations and several fundraising events to help the families and individuals who might otherwise be overlooked in Greenwich.
“People do not realize that there is a low-income contingent in Greenwich,” says Development Director, Tara Blanchard. She continued, “I recently moved to Greenwich and I know I was surprised to learn just how large that population is. CCI serves a very important role in the lives of kids and adults – our neighbors- who would otherwise be overlooked.”
Please help CCI continue its mission to empower clients to overcome educational, social, and economic barriers and reach their full potential by donating online (ccigreenwich.org) or by mail (payable to) Community Centers, Inc. at 61 East Putnam Avenue, Greenwich, CT 06830.
