On Tuesday May 23, 2017, the United Way of Coastal Fairfield County (UWCFC) held their 2017 LIVE UNITED Celebration at The Schelfhaudt Gallery at the University of Bridgeport.
The UWCFC awarded ODFC Co-Chair Adam Bovilsky The Madison Sayles Neighbors Helping Neighbors Award, for his outstanding work in the region.
In his acceptance speech, Adam took the time to both honor the tireless efforts of the United Way, and recognize the unprecedented collaboration among organizations in the region around preventing and ending homelessness.
The evening brought together many individuals, institutions, and community partners to celebrate the UWCFC’s important, ongoing work of:
Tackling the ravaging effects of poverty on children and families
Confronting the education inequity in Coastal Fairfield County
Breaking down the barriers that keep children from achieving their potential and
Inspiring youth to embrace their future.
