On Oct. 3, 2019 we welcomed over 300 Square One supporters to the Starting Gate at Great Horse for our 14th Annual Square One Tea Party.

Inspired by the characters and storyline of Peter Pan, guests were treated to an array of delicious foods, teas and cocktails, while learning more about Square One’s work with children and families, thanks to our featured speaker, Square One alumna Attorney Tasheena Davis, Springfield City Clerk.

The event was made possible by this year’s lead sponsors, including: I Heart Radio, PeoplesBank, USI Insurance, The Republican/El Pueblo, Western Mass News, Columbia Gas, The DiStefano Group, Napatree Capital, NEPM, Peter Pan Bus Lines, Tommy Car Auto, Bay Path University, Springfield Thunderbirds, Brenda Cuoco & Associates Real Living Realty Professionals, Deliso Financial & Insurance Services, Eastern States Expo, Kate Kane, Mercy Medical, STCC, and The Hamre Team at Rovithis Realty.

Very special thanks to our masters of ceremony, Kera Burke and Chris Zito of Mix 93.1 and our “cast of characters,” who surely know how to put the “fun” in fundraising: Justin Roberts, Ashley Kohl, Dave Condon, Beth Valente, Nathan Bazinet, Dawn Creighton, Brian Lawler, Ryan McCollum and Katie Force.

Last but far from least, HUGE thanks to this year’s planning committee: Jackie Martucci, Nina Cameron, Karen Tetrault, Beth Valente, Maggie Ducheny, Brian Lawler, Colleen Stocks, Kelli Moriarity-Finn, Amy Selvia-Smith, Peter Testori, Denise Jordan, Aimee Henderson, Katheryn Wakefield and Xiaolei Hua.

We are so grateful to everyone who contributed to the success of our event!
