To celebrate its 60th anniversary, Ability Beyond Disability hosted a gala that raised a record-breaking $1 million, with donations still coming in, on April 27 at the Amber Room Colonnade in Danbury.
Longtime supporters Kevin and Elaine Cox of Ridgefield were honored with the Robert S. Young Humanitarian Award for their “unmatched commitment to the community.”
Ridgefield First Selectman Rudy Marconi chaired the event. Mr. Marconi has supported Ability Beyond Disability for many years and employs an individual served by the organization at Ridgefield Town Hall.
More than 550 people attended.
Ability Beyond Disability helps people with disabilities succeed through community job training and placement, supported living, and recreational and educational opportunities.
