The following information is from The Human Relations Service (HRS):
The Human Relations Service (HRS) will hold its Seventh Annual Arnold Kerzner Award Dinner and Auction to benefit The Human Relations Service on Tuesday, May 15, at 6 p.m. at Hunnewell House at Elm Bank, Wellesley.
HRS will honor Dr. Cheryl Maloney, the Superintendent of Weston Public Schools. HRS has been an important partner in her educational work over the years. In her own words, “As I look back on my 27 years as an educator in the Weston Public Schools, no matter what position I have held, I cannot imagine working without the support of HRS. HRS has also been there when each of our districts needed help coping with tragedy, working with entire schools and individuals.”
The Human Relations Service (HRS) is the non-profit community mental health agency serving Wellesley, Weston and Wayland. Founded in 1948, HRS was the first clinic in the nation to emphasize prevention, as well as treatment, in its programs. Today, HRS provides a wide variety of clinical, consultation, community education and employee assistance services. Sliding-scale fees are available to residents who can’t afford the full cost of care. Up to 25 percent
of HRS’ clients qualify for such fees in any given year.
The funds raised at this annual event help ensure that HRS can keep providing the highest quality care to those in need and continue to support the well-being of our community. Join HRS for an evening of delicious food from local celebrity chefs, entertainment, fine wines and spirits, and an auction.
Celebrity Chefs include: Geoff Gardner, Sel de la Terre; Mitchell Maxwell, Maxwell’s 148; Derek Labounty, The Cottage Restaurant, and Richard Rayment, Seaport Boston Hotel. The Celebrity Auctioneer will be Susan Wornick, WCVB-TV Boston. Tickets to the dinner are $250 per person. Many funding opportunities exist at all levels (ads, tributes, table hosting) within various levels of donations.
