CRIS’ 22nd GOLF CLASSIC: Wrap up

The 22nd CRIS Golf Classic was a huge success, raising money by gathering old friends and new for an afternoon of the ancient game.  The money raised from the tournament allows CRIS to offer its service at no cost to people living in the community who are blind or unable to read due to learning, physical, intellectual, and emotional disabilities.

Dining & Dancing in the Dark 2019

The judges gave perfect scores to Taylor Kinzler, co-host of NBC CT-Live, who danced a salsa with Arthur Murray Dance Studios pro Kadeem Jordon, and to Eva Zymaris, WFSB reporter, who danced a cha-cha with Luis Cabasa, also a dance pro with Arthur Murray. The audience’s votes broke the tie, giving Kinzler the win for her performance.

Among the evening’s highlights were the dance performances of two CRIS volunteers who also are CRIS listeners, Diane Duhaime and Steve Famiglietti. Duhaime danced a waltz with Arthur Murray’s Crisen McKenzie and Famiglietti, manager of assistive technology at Oak Hill, danced a tango with dance pro Sally Nasatka.  READ MORE
