Rockin' for Our Kids 2007
The Institute Celebrated National Adoption Month with a Benefit Concert on Nov. 9. "Rockin' for Our Kids," held at the Spring Valley Country Club in suburban Sharon, MA, that was a success (and a lot of fun) thanks to the contributions and participation of our New England-area supporters. The evening featured a fabulous dinner, silent auction, and live music by the Annulments and Danny Klein's Full House. A highlight was when a group of children, who were invited to join their parents at the event, formed their own circle on the dance floor and got into the music. You could say that the kids were rockin' for us as much as we were rockin' for them!
We’re very grateful to our event sponsors, Bonnie A. Emmons and John H. Emmons, Jr.; Wide Horizons for Children; the Family Equality Council; Peter Hackel and PH Productions; the publications BostonNOW and TRAVELHOST; and our wonderful volunteer Jerry Urdang. And a very special thank-you to our lead sponsor, State Street Corporation, and to our friend and supporter Doug Mehne for all he did to make it happen.
