STAMFORD, CT - “Come Play!… It’s Opening Day” is the theme of this year’s gala for the Child Guidance Center of Southern Connecticut (CGC), inspired by the importance of play in every child’s life. The event will be held on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 6:00pm at the Loading Dock in Stamford, with tickets starting at $290/pp.

Drawing from children’s excitement at their first baseball game, this year’s theme is inspired by America’s Pastime. In its 9th year, “Come Play!” provides crucial funding for CGC’s essential mental health services for children in our community who are traumatized, acting out, depressed, and in desperate need of help. CGC comes to the aid of all youth who need their life-saving services, regardless of whether or not a family can pay.

The gala will include a reception and dinner catered by Abigail Kirsch, music provided by James Daniel Entertainment, dancing, and live and silent auctions. Attire is black-tie optional, with interpretations of “baseball-chic” welcome. All event proceeds will help provide therapy and emergency crisis services for children, adolescents, and their families in Stamford, Greenwich, Darien and New Canaan.

Currently, event sponsors include Barclays, Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey LLP, Centerview Partners, Cummings & Lockwood, Deloitte & Touche, Eaton & Associates, GE, Greenwich Bank and Trust, Pitney Bowes, Plaza Realty & Management, PwC, Rapid Press, Serendipity Magazine, Stamford Hospital, Thomson Reuters, and Wells Fargo Private Bank (list in formation).
