The Robbie Foundation wants to extend its appreciation and thanks to all of the business owners and members of the community who helped make our first annual ‘Benefit Gala’ an amazing success. More than 75 people attended the event which was held on October 12th at the Black Point Inn in Scarborough.
We would like to thank our sponsors: Martin’s Point Health Care, Black Bear Medical, Southern Maine Pediatric Dentistry, Mainely Kidz, Saco-Biddeford Savings Institution, Walgreen’s and Osteophathic Health Care of Maine. Without your support this event would not have been possible. A big thanks also goes to WCSH6’s Jackie Ward who emceed the event and comedian Tim Sample, who kept everyone laughing with his comic performance.
We also want to thank all our business owners and members of the community in Maine who donated items to our silent auction. The event raised $11,000 which will go towards bridging the gap for Maine children and youth with developmental disabilities in Maine. 95 percent of the money raised by RF goes to purchasing adaptive equipment, therapeutic treatments and other services not covered by insurance. In the past two years, the Robbie Foundation has donated more than $20,000 to families with children with developmental disabilities.
