Join us for a memorable night as we raise awareness for children with special needs. We are excited to have special guest and creative mastermind Don Oriolo as our live auctioneer. Don took over the Felix the Cat franchise from his late father and Felix the Cat co-creator, Joe Oriolo. Don is a fixture in the art, music, television and film industries and is widely admired for his charitable and philanthropic endeavors.
This year we will be proudly honoring:
Charlotte Leitner, Founder of The Calais School
Trevor Jones, Trustee & Treasurer of The Calais Foundation
Maryann Braen, Leitner Excellence in Education Award recipient and esteemed teacher at The Calais School
All of our honorees have made a significant impact in the lives of children with special learning needs. We look forward to seeing you at the Gala as we celebrate their dedication and raise awareness for these very deserving children!
