DRACUT – The Arbors at Dracut in partnership with Dracut Volunteers, Inc. (DVI) cashed in big at their Casino Night, held Thursday, Oct. 17 at The Arbors on Broadway Road.
Guests were treated to delicious hors d’oeuvres provided by The Arbors and had an amazing time playing roulette, craps, poker and more!
“We had many
happy people winning lots of great prizes while getting to know their neighbors
who live in the community”, said Pat Svrcek, DVI Vice-President. This is
the second event hosted by The Arbors in partnership with DVI, a non-profit whose
mission is to inspire people to build a healthy, engaged community, promote
volunteerism, and develop a sense of belonging in the community.
The event was held to raise funds to purchase SafetyNet™ Bracelets, which feature a radio frequency transmitter that emits a continuous signal, allowing trained search and rescue teams to track the person wearing it. Dracut Volunteers offers the bracelets to Dracut residents with cognitive conditions such as autism, Alzheimer’s, Down Syndrome and traumatic brain injuries, who are prone to wandering. “We are proud to join Dracut Volunteers for this special event, to raise both funds and awareness for people at risk. This technology adds an essential layer of comfort and peace of mind for family members”, said Jonathan Athanas, Executive Director of The Arbors at Dracut.
