Radio celebrity Candy O’Terry will emcee the 34th Annual Road to Responsibility “Making Lives Better” Gala on Thursday, Sept. 15 starting at 6 p.m. at Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy.
O’Terry, a radio broadcaster, podcaster, singer, songwriter and speaker coach is the recipient of 42 national and 23 local awards for excellence as an interviewer and host. The co-founder of Boston Women in Media & Entertainment from 2012 to 2020, she spent 25 years on the air at WMJX Magic 106.7 and is the creator of the station’s signature public affairs program, “Exceptional Women. “
Road to Road Responsibility is a nonprofit organization supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
This year’s annual mission-driven event will feature a cocktail reception, interactive gaming experiences, a mobile bidding auction, dinner, live entertainment, a dessert buffet and a special program highlighting and celebrating the progress and change Road to Responsibility has made for individuals in the local community.
“When you interview people for a living, you learn a lot about passion, purpose and what really matters most,” said O’Terry. “It is such an honor for me to host the ‘Making Lives Better Gala’ because of this local organization’s noble mission to make lives better, one person at a time. At the end of the day, isn’t that what life is all about?”
“We’re thrilled to have Candy O’Terry as emcee of this year’s live and in-person gala,” said Christopher T. White, president and CEO of Road to Responsibility. “Her magnetic personality is certain to make our 34th annual gala one to remember!”
