Casino Night

 Our 3rd Annual Casino Night fundraising event was held on January 27, 2018 at the Inn at Longshore in Westport, CT. TD Bank was the honoree. Our young adult, Cee-Cee, spoke on the impact the Center has had on her life since the age of 14. The event was a success raising funds to benefit the Cardinal Shehan Center's After School & Satrday Program for inner city children.
