Management of the Walnut Street Center showed their appreciation to its “Gala Event Committee” board members by treating them to a luncheon at the Charles River Golf Course in Newton on Friday.
The Gala Committee that is chaired and spearheaded by Former Somerville Mayor Gene Brune and Somerville Alderman-at-Large Jack Connolly helped raise over $35,000 for the Walnut Street Center with this year’s Gala back in September.
The event was held at the Somerville Holiday Inn with over two hundred attendees.
Walnut Street Center is a nonprofit, human service agency located in Somerville, Arlington and Cambridge, MA that provides residential, day and individual/family support services to over 200 adults with developmental disabilities. Walnut Street Center was started in 1970 by a group of parents that wanted to provide a better way of life for their children and other persons with developmental disabilities.
Walnut Street Center’s mission is to empower adults who have developmental disabilities to make meaningful life choices.
