SJPC Annual Benefit Dinner

Thank You To Our Generous Sponsors & All Who Attended!


Oh what a night! On Thursday, November 2, SJPC Executive Director, Rhonda Neal and the SJPC Board hosted SJPC Season of Giving Gala at the Country Club of New Canaan. With the support of our Sponsors, Board of Directors, Friends, and Staff, we were able to exceed our fundraising goal and set a new standard!
To start the evening we were treated to a special performance from award winning flutist Sherry Winston. She has graced the international stage performing for Stevie Wonder and President Clinton.
The highlight of the evening is the Imagine Award which is presented to an individual who achieves greatness in positively impacting the lives of CT children and parents. This year, the SJPC Imagine Award honored our past Chairman of the Board, Gene Waggaman III. Through his Outreach duties, Gene became familiar with several struggling nonprofits in Stamford and over the next twenty years chaired the Mayor’s Focus on Youth Board, the Council of Churches and Synagogues, Domus and finally Saint Joseph Parenting Center.
Our annual event celebrates SJPC’s mission to Educate the Parent, Protect the Child and recognizes SJPC accomplishments and plans for the future.
With heartfelt thanks to all our volunteers and the over 200 guests who supported and gave generously to this wonderful evening!
