2013 Annual Gala



We are delighted to share that CMA’s annual fundraising gala was an overwhelming success!  Held at the Muttontown Club, our gala was attended by more than 250 friends and supporters and featured the debut performance of the CMA Chior, a great assortment of gifts and prizes, and an appeal that will enable us to provide additional services to individuals in our care seeking gainful employment.  An annual tradition, this event celebrates CMA’s important mission of providing services that enable people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to maximize their potential.

Very special thanks to our 2013 honoree’s, 

Jodi Golden, Sandi Greenfield & Amy Greeenberg


We also extend our deepest thanks to our Board President, Ossie Spector

Our 2013 gala was co-chaired by two very special friends,
