“There’s no greater gift than a community coming together and supporting each other and that’s what Shelter Island does best,” said Gina Krauss, a board member of Island Gift of Life Foundation, which helps East End families with uninsured costs during treatment of serious diseases such as travel and lodging expenses for family members to distant treatment centers.
The Foundation is hosting its 19th Annual Cheryl Hannabury Memorial “Celebration of Life” community cocktail party on Saturday, March 2, from 6 to 9 p.m., at the Ram’s Head Inn. The evening will feature live music, an open bar, light fare, a 50/50 raffle, a Chinese auction and an experiential bid auction.
