With your generosity, residents and their families will be able to address obstacles hindering their pathway forward and take the life-changing steps needed to create healthy, positive futures.
The Gala takes place on the bucolic 80-acre Connors Center estate in Dover beginning at 6 pm with a cocktail reception featuring an open wine and beer bar and savory hors d’ouevres. A brief program starts at 7 pm, hosted by 1854 Cycling Company Founder/CEO and Bethany Hill Place board member Brandale Randolph, and will include remarks from one of our residents that will inspire all of us. An artisan collection of homemade desserts, coffee, and tea follows the speaking program.
The Legacy of Justice Award recognizes individuals or organizations that demonstrate a commitment to meaningful social change and set a standard for critical work and investment supporting healing, growth, and transformation in our communities.
