More than 100 guests attended Cocktails for a Cause benefiting Veterans Count Rhode Island raising nearly $21,000 for veterans, service members, and their families.
The highlight of the evening came from our esteemed guest speaker Colonel David Sutherland, Chairman Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services who gave an emotional and deeply motivating speech on how to connect solutions and tools to veterans and military families in need of education, meaningful employment, and wellness. Colonel Sutherland concluded by presenting Easterseals with a check for $15,000 to support female veterans and their families in Rhode Island.
Our thanks to our sponsors, local businesses, and friends of Easterseals who provided in kind donations for the silent auction.
