2013 WARM Hearts Gala Postponed Until October
recognition of the effects that Superstorm Sandy continue to have
on the Town of Westerly and the beach community, The WARM Center has
decided to postpone our annual GALA. The generosity of the people
of Westerly has been focused on rebuilding of the beach and the WARM
Center fully supports that effort.
In the current economy and in light of recent natural disasters, it
is difficult for our community to stretch its financial resources in
so many different directions. We also recognize that without the beach
as an economic driver for employment many of our neighbors will feel
the impact in the upcoming summer season. In this regard, WARM has rescheduled
the GALA for October 18, 2013 and will honor any tickets that have been
sold to date. We will also gladly refund the cost of tickets or sponsorships
to anyone who chooses to request a refund. For more information or to
request a refund, please contact Joy Cordio at the WARM Center 596-9276
WARM appreciates the continued generosity and support of the community
and hopes to celebrate a successful summer season with our supporters
at the GALA.
