Several hundred people gathered at the Sheraton Eatontown on March 12th for LADACIN Network’s premier fundraising event, the Rosebud Gala. In addition to dining and dancing, the elegant evening included an award ceremony in which the Agency’s most prestigious partners are acknowledged.

Donations from TD Bank and TD Charitable Foundation have supported adults living in LADACIN group residences as well as pre-school children at LADACIN’s Give and Take Child Care and preschool facility. The Kennedy E. Kowalski Charitable Foundation has donated over $25,000 to LADACIN, which funds equipment that helps individuals advance in their own way, at their own pace – an essential component to increasing quality of life.

Red Bank Catholic High School and The Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs, Inc. were honored for their volunteerism at LADACIN. RBC students have been helping at events, assisting teachers and engaging children at LADACIN since 2009. During their weekly visits, Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs and their handlers provide unconditional love and tail-wagging warmth to children and adults at LADACIN facilities throughout Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

Only through the support of partners is LADACIN able to assist individuals with complex physical and developmental disabilities or delays in reaching their goals. It’s our pleasure to celebrate the kindness of our community!
