Sprint Benefit
It isn't too early to be thinking about spring - and definitely not too early to start thinking about the Spring "Always Remember" benefit. We are still finalizing our plans and beginning to solicit donations for the auction, which is always a fun part of the event. If you can contribute an item for the auction - sporting event tickets, restaurant vouchers, theatre tickets, travel vouchers, gift certificates - please contact Stephanie Cowin at 203-966-3911 or scowin@voicesofsept11.org.
