A Wonderful Night in Connecticut

September 21, 2010

In June The China Care Foundation held its annual benefit celebration in Greenwich, Connecticut that raised nearly $1 million to provide life-saving medical care for Chinese orphans with special needs. Over 400 special guests came out to support the Foundation in its efforts to provide critical surgeries and treatment for orphaned children in China who suffer from a range of health problems, from heart defects to club feet.

China Care President and founder, Matt Dalio, introduced the Foundations Ten Year Anniversary video, which celebrates how far our community has come and how many children we have been able to serve by working together.

Matt also welcomed  and her children Grace and Jamie on stage to demonstrate how important it is to find loving adoptive families for orphaned children with special needs. As Kellie hugged her children and proudly talked about each child’s special qualities, it became evident that China Care’s role preparing orphaned children with special needs to thrive in families of their own is a crucial one.

The evening’s silent auction featured escapes, experiences and cultural activities, including a spa weekend in the Italian Alps and box tickets at the Metropolitan Opera. One lucky bidder even walked away with a signed Dave Matt hews Band guitar! Because China Care’s Board of Directors underwrites all the event costs, all proceeds from the festivities go to help the children cared for by China Care.
