It was an evening of music based on the TV hit The Voice. “Turn Up the Music” was the theme of the 23rd annual Kennedy Center Cabaret. The audience was moved by the entertainment that the guests clapped and swayed their hands, shrieked and whistled with excitement, and danced the night away on and off the stage. This evening to remember benefited Children’s Services at The Kennedy Center and raised $30,000. Both Chair Christine Mahoney of Trumbull and Entertainment Director Elayne Cassara of Weston are to be commended for their commitment of time and talent to this worthy charity event.
Since its inception more than 20 years ago, the auction/cabaret has raised more than $1 million for the benefit of Children’s Services at The Kennedy Center. These programs include the following comprehensive services: Birth to Three, Family Enrichment, Summer Camp Program, Community Rec Program, Artworks, Sibling Programs, The Autism Project, Volunteer Support Services, Family Partnership, Lighthouse After School, Partners Program, and Social Activity Groups.
