Road to Responsibility has announced that its annual “Making Lives Better” Gala will be held virtually this year, on Thursday, Sept. 24, beginning at 6:45 p.m. The event will celebrate Road to Responsibility’s 32 years of improving life for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Given the ongoing pandemic, attendance via Zoom is free, but registration is required, and participants are encouraged to donate in lieu of a ticket or table purchase. The event will welcome back emcee Michael Page of NBC Boston and feature a special program highlighting and celebrating the progress and change Road to Responsibility has made for individuals, families, and local communities.
The celebration will also feature an online auction, and all participants will receive mobile bidding and streaming instructions prior to the event.
Xerox Business Solutions is the gala’s featured sponsor. Additional sponsors include VHS Transportation Company, Inc. and Patriot Investment Corp.; the Benoit and Parsons Family; Eastern Bank; M&T Bank; Unicorn Realty; Black Rock Advertising & South Shore Magazine; Dr. Chris White & Ms. Treva Sabin-White; Ms. Pattricia Clark; Sesco Realty Trust; Sigma Mechanical Services; South Shore Bank; Baker, Braverman & Barbadoro; Callahan/Hoffman Co.; HarborOne Bank; Legacy Resnik, LLC; Philadelphia Insurance Companies: Rockland Trust; and Signet Electronic Systems, Inc.
“This will be a gala different than any of us are used to,” said Christopher White, Ed.D., CEO of Road to Responsibility. “But we still have so much to celebrate and so much to be thankful for. We look forward to coming together, and hope that many of our ‘attendees’ might be able to gather in small groups together as well. Now more than ever, we also need your support to continue our mission of making lives better for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, especially during this challenging time.”
