Community Navigators Inc. is hosting its second annual Happy Hour Fundraiser on Thursday, Oct. 26, from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. at Taphouse 150, 150 Sebethe Drive, Cromwell.
Join us for wood-fired pizza, drink specials, gift drawings and a special presentation by CNI founder and Volunteer CEO Larissa Gionfriddo. Prizes will include a 3-month gym membership, gift basket, gift cards, event passes and much more.
The event benefits Community Navigators Inc., a growing non-profit that celebrates individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities, helping them design rewarding lives and find meaningful employment within their communities.
“We believe strongly that ‘one size does not fit all’ when it comes to individuals with disabilities,” said Gionfriddo. “We strive to make sure that each individual’s hopes and dreams are taken into consideration and they are allowed to build the life they want within their community.”
Community Navigators works with individuals like this young gentleman from Southington who is starting a dog-walking business, and a 37-year-old young woman from Cromwell who has her own social media business. CNI works with individuals to help them create the job they’ve always dreamed of and helps bring that dream to fruition through support and implementation.
At the event Gionfriddo, who was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer at age 30, will discuss CNI’s Breast Cancer Initiative, which seeks to gather data on how individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities are supported regarding breast cancer. Gionfriddo due to her diagnosis volunteers her time to keep building CNI while she battles her cancer.
