2021 Children’s Friendship Award Virtual Fundraising Event

Watch our event on June 3, 2021 and donate to our cause

Each year our Children’s Friendship Award event honors people who have made a difference in the lives of children in Rhode Island. During our event you can see stories of St. Mary’s impact and hear from a variety of people involved in the work. So save the date of June 3, 2021 at 6:30 pm to watch our show and become a sponsor or make a donation. You’ll be able to watch through Facebook, YouTube, and our website. Every penny counts and will go towards helping your neighbors. This year’s theme is Take Flight on Wings of Hope because your support helps the children and adults we serve to find hope and healing to achieve better lives. Consider becoming a sponsor for our event, registering for our event, or making an immediate donation. To read about this year’s Children’s Friendship Award winners, visit this page.
