ACDS

 

 

ACDS once again benefitted from the generosity of more than 200 supporters of the Patrick Xavier Owens Memorial Foundation’s annual fundraiser on January 22. The foundation was started in 2004 to honor Patrick, a former student who passed away in 1997 at the age of 5; the annual fundraiser keeps his memory alive. The Owens family has raised nearly $70,000 since 2004. The day’s events started at East Rockaway High School with men’s and women’s alumni basketball games, as well as a game featuring residents of ACDS’ adult homes.

Later that night, the family hosted a cocktail party at the K of C in Oceanside which featured an open bar and buffet, raffles and auction prizes, live music and comedy. The night was a rousing success, by far the largest Patrick Owens Memorial yet, raising more than $16,000.

Our appreciation and heartfelt thanks go out to all who attended and supported the day’s events, with special thanks to Patrick’s parents, Tom and Liz Owens and the fundraiser’s driving force and organizer, Patrick’s old brother Alan.
