Large Turnout for Circle of Friends Gala Image
More than 300 persons gathered at Westport’s Inn at Longshore tonight in support of a 10th anniversary celebration fundraiser gala for the Norwalk-based Circle of Friends organization which offers programs and support for individuals with special needs. According to the group’s spiritual leader, Rabbi Yehoshua S. Hecht of Beth Israel Westport/Norwalk, the volunteer program involves 130 teens, more than 90 from Westport, who work with children with special needs. Guests of honor, Andrea and Bill Pecoriello, were presented with the Visionary Award. Laura Kassen, daughter of former Westport Selectman Shelly Kassen and Michael Kassen, was presented with the Young Leadership Award. Pictured (l-r) are Norwalk Mayor Harry W. Rilling, Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe, Bill and Andrea Pecoriello, guests of honor, Weston First Selectman Gail Weinstein, Freida Hecht, director, Circle of Friends, and Rabbi Yehoshua S.
