St. Gianna’s Place is having a Benefit Banquet on May 1 beginning at 5:30 pm at the Executive Court Banquet Facility in Manchester to celebrate signing our lease. We hope to raise funds for operating expenses and build awareness through this event. James Wahlberg, CEO of the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation, is our guest speaker. He is a strong advocate for life and an active participant in the dialogue about addiction and recovery. He is the creator of the critically acclaimed short film, If Only. Reservations can be made online at www.stgiannasplace.org and are available at $60 per seat before March 15 and at $65 per seat thereafter.
