“There is something very unique and special about this group and this annual party,” expressed Ingram Chodorow, Chair of the Financial Resource & Development Committee at Seacrest Village. “While we continue to see the same friendly faces each year, we add new people as well, and no one wants to miss it. We may not see one another much throughout the year, but when we come together it’s like a family reunion, and we all love the reason we are here. It just makes me feel so good to be a part of it. I hope that anyone reading this will consider joining us next year so they can start to experience this great sense of doing the right thing for those who need us and those who came before us.”
