On Friday, June 13th, RCS Learning Center hosted their 2nd Annual “A Toast to Progress” at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel and Conference Center. The evening focused on sharing RCS’ important mission and the progress our students continue to make at the non-profit school. With over 100 staff members, parents, donors, and community members in the room, the event successfully raised $8,500 to benefit the organization’s “Let’s Get to Work” Vocational Program.
Guests in attendance enjoyed live music, a raffle featuring prizes such as Vineyard Vines ties, gift certificates to local restaurants and cultural institutions, and custom jewelry, and a silent auction, with popular items including a private wine tasting for 10 at Westport Rivers Winery with transportation from Accent Limo.
The highlight of the evening included a moving speech by RCS President & Founder, Denise Rizzo and an emotional video celebrating the progress and successes of 5 RCS students. “The night was truly a celebration and we want to thank everyone for joining us and supporting the event,” said Denise Rizzo. “We strive everyday as an organization to ensure that no student falls through the cracks and that every one of our kids is reaching their full potential. We’re so proud of all of our students for their hard work and all of their accomplishments.”
The evening could not have been such a success without the generosity of our sponsors. Thanks to our Video & Entertainment Sponsors: R.W Holmes Realty Co. and Telamon Insurance and Financial Network, our Hospitality Sponsors: Align Credit Union, Eastern Bank, Mini-Miracles Child Care Center, and RCS Behavioral & Educational Consulting, and our Champagne Toast Sponsor: The George Family.
