NORWALK, Conn. -- Norwalk's Keystone House Inc. is preparing for Mystery Gala, its annual fundraising event.
The event will take place on Friday, May 1. It will give people a chance to support an organization that has spent the last 43 years providing housing and supportive services to adults over 18 who struggle with mental illness
Mental illness is a highly personal experience, and the same condition may be experienced by two people in completely different ways. Mental illness is not a character flaw or a sign of a personal weakness. It can strike anyone. It knows no age limit, whether you are rich or poor, and does not discriminate as to race, creed or color.
The work that Keystone does, 24/7, allows its clients to adjust to and remain in the community environments of their choice with personal success and satisfaction with as much independence as individually possible. To demonstrate the work on a very personal level, the highlight of the evening’s program will be a Keystone client, sharing his or her challenges and success thanks to Keystone. “I am inspired on a daily basis by both the staff at Keystone and the clients they serve. The personalized approach for each client results in a 97 percent overall satisfaction rate by Keystone clients,” said Elizabeth P. Ball, Keystone board member and chairperson of fundraising committee.
Former News 12 CT anchor, Easton resident and co-host of "The Exchange," David Smith, will be the master of ceremonies for the evening. There will be an open bar, dinner, music, dancing, mystery boxes and a paddle raise. TFI Envision Inc. of Norwalk, a Success Sponsor for the event, is also donating the creative development of the event materials and public relations again. This is Keystone’s primary fundraising event.
Individual tickets are $150. For more information, advanced reservations and sponsorship opportunities, contact Kim Carter at 203-956-7818 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
