Lawrence, MA, May 10, 2018 – Another sold-out show stopper. Two great themes, one great event! Guests donned their best derby attire, but their biggest accessory was their smiles. Proudly sponsored by Pentucket Bank, and many other sponsors, guests enjoyed watching the derby, winning raffles, a special live performance by Rob Surette – Amazing Hero Art, an impressive buffet of Southern and Mexican fare, and taking part in the unique TPC derby.
The generosity of our lead sponsor, Pentucket Bank, who proudly supports The Psychological Center and almost 200 other area non-profits, as well as our other event sponsors, and guests in attendance directly empowers each individual while leading to the success of housing, recovery, employment, and family reunification.
“This is the second year in a row where this extraordinary event was held to empower guests of The Psychological Center while they are overcoming barriers in their life with the support of the programs and the community. The outpouring of support is truly commendable. The fundraising event is exciting and very memorable.” Carina Pappalardo, CEO. “We had many people in attendance from last year who couldn’t wait for the night and are looking forward to next year’s event.”
