Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2023 Silver Linings Gala on October 7th, where we celebrated 34 years of service. It was a spectacular evening where you helped us exceed our fundraising goal by raising over $300,000! These funds will allow us to continue providing critical social support to people in the community free of charge.

During this special event, we were proud to recognize this year’s honorees:

  • Audrey Rothstein (The Jerry Gimmel Loyalty Award)
  • CohnReznick (Corporate Award)
  • Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center (Community Partnership Award)

The inspirational program featured a special video, produced by County Cable Montgomery for the Montgomery County Council, highlighting personal stories from our volunteers. You can view the video below and on our website. The event program book and photos from the event are also available on our website. Thank you to our photographers, Jerry Frishman and Yaniv Barad.

Over the past 34 years, our organization has touched the lives of thousands of people in the community during times of illness and grief. As we reflect on past accomplishments, we also look forward to the future and many more productive years serving the residents of Montgomery County. We couldn't do this important work without you!

Thank you for your generosity and continued support!
