PORTLAND — Since 1966 Catholic Charities Maine has been focusing some of Maine’s most complex issues — mental health, substance abuse, quality care for children and seniors, hunger insecurity and helping refugees rebuild their lives. While inspired by scripture and the Church’s social teaching, the state-wide social service Agency serves individuals and families regardless of faith and helped to empower and strengthen more than 55,000 people in Maine last year alone through its 20+ programs and services.
To mark its 50th anniversary Catholic Charities will celebrate with the inaugural RICHES Awards Dinner honoring the outstanding individuals, businesses, faith-based and community organizations that have worked to build a better, stronger community. The evening will also feature inspirational keynote guest speaker CCUSA President, Sister Donna Markham.
The 50th Anniversary and inaugural RICHES Awards Dinner will be held on Wednesday, November 9th at 5:30pm at the DoubleTree Hotel in South Portland. Tickets are $50 per person or $400 for a table of eight. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.ccmaine.org/riches-awards.
