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.
The 2018 version of Dining and Dancing in the Dark is history and it made history. The past champions who competed, dazzled the crowd with flashy dressed, incredible moves and even some nostalgia. Billy Johnstone eked out victory over an energized pool of rivals, including Nicole Nalepa, Marilyn Alverio, Floyd Green and Hanna Mordo. Thanks also to the crew from Arthur Murray, Scott Haney, Ann Howard, Eight to the Bar and all of those who came out to support Connecticut's radio reading service.
Scot Haney knocked the ball out of the park with his dance performance, but on this night his competition wasn't Joe Furey and Weather Watch, it was the five most dazzling women in all of Connecticut. The 2017 Dining & Dancing in the Dark Champions are: Amanda Raus (Fox CT) & Hanna Mordoh.
It may have been the most dazzling D&D yet, and the winners are the people all over Connecticut who use CRIS services, as the night raised record amounts to help CRIS continue its mission.
Thank you to everyone who participated and made this such a fantastic event!
