The Gala - Riverside Community Care

Mark your calendar – the 2019 Gala will be held on Friday, April 5, 2019 at the Charles Hotel

The Gala – Celebrating The Guidance Center, held on April 27 at The Charles Hotel in Cambridge, raised more than $220,000 for Riverside’s Child & Family Services in Cambridge and Somerville. Jasmin, now 27, inspired the audience with her story about receiving Riverside services starting at age 11. She says she is now equipped with tools and resources to help cope with the trauma she experienced as a child.

Joan Mikula, Commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health, shared her perspective on the critical role Riverside plays in providing quality child mental health and family support services to families in the state. We were delighted to thank her for her passion for children’s mental health services.

Special thanks to Gala Committee Co-Chairs Maggie Currier, Lauren Harder, and Melody Mak-Jurkauskas, to the entire Gala Committee, and to our donors for making the evening a resounding success!
