Lifespire was invited along with other community leaders to attend a meeting with the Honorable Richard Thomas, Mayor of Mount Vernon, to discuss strategies for the protection of vulnerable populations in Mount Vernon, including people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. Kenya Gadsden, Lifespire's residential program coordinator for our residence in Mount Vernon, attended the meeting and is pictured here with the Mayor.
Delta Airlines partnered with Lifespire’s Manhattan South Comprehensive Day Center to provide a tour of LaGuardia Airport’s Marine Air Terminal, home of the Delta Shuttle. A number of our individuals had never experienced airport travel so although we did not fly off anywhere – they did get to go through security, practice boarding and watch some take offs and landings!
Another Successful Fundraiser!
Despite the rainy weather, over 100 friends of Lifespire came to golf, eat, drink, celebrate and support Lifespire at the 17th Annual Lifespire Golf Classic. The efforts of those who were able to attend and those who championed us from afar resulted in over $200,000 raised to help the 5,000 adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities assisted by Lifespire reach their life goals of home, community and meaningful employment. We thank everyone for supporting our cause and we look forward to seeing old and new friends next summer at the 18th Annual Lifespire Golf Classic!
