The Kennedy Center Breakfast Challenge

Raising awareness for breakfast fundraiser for The Kennedy Center.

At 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at the Circle Diner (441 Post Road, Fairfield) state Rep. T.R. Rowe and I will be joining a group of our neighbors for the 7th Annual Kennedy Center Breakfast Challenge. Aside from being a friendly team competition, the breakfast raises money for —a nonprofit organization that provides programs and services to persons with disabilities and special needs in our community.

Sixty years ago, The Kennedy Center’s founder, Evelyn Kennedy, fought for equal opportunities for children with intellectual disabilities. Since that time, The Kennedy Center has expanded to offer nationally recognized, high quality programs and services to all individuals with special needs from birth to senior years. But the struggle continues. This agency needs the community’s support and with our efforts, we can help The Kennedy Center to continue providing critical services and programs.

The Kennedy Center and the array of services they provide are invaluable not only for the client, but also their family and our community. Their mission and services empower people with intellectual disabilities with the skills and opportunity to lead a productive and fulfilling life of their choosing. We MUST support and sustain this local jewel in our community.

Please help me support this agency by making a one-time, tax-deductible donation by joining us for breakfast or made online. With your gracious support, we can make a positive impact in the lives of persons with disabilities in Connecticut.
