The 2nd Annual Gala of the Joan DeCotis Foundation

The 2016 Gala of the Joan DeCotis Foundation

At the Dunes Club in Narragansett Proves to Be a Big Success

On August 4, 2016, the Joan DeCotis Foundation held its second gala at the Dunes Club in Narragansett. On this beautiful New England summer night, 240 guests enjoyed dinner, raffles, a silent auction, and entertainment by Steve Palumbo. The event raised over $76,000. The Foundation thanks all the sponsors that helped make the event possible, including DeCotis Insurance Associates, Jones Kelleher LLP, Rhode Island Monthly, and the Skeffington and Murray families.

This is the foundation’s second significant fundraiser. To date, the foundation has raised over $160,000 in its effort to change the way we treat lung cancer.

We would like to thank our event sponsors.

The 1st Annual Gala of the Joan DeCotis Foundation

Thank you to all those who attended our 1st Annual Gala event held at The Dunes Club in Narragansett, Rhode Island. It was a great evening with friends old and new, in a beautiful location next to the ocean. With the generous support of our guests, we were able to raise over $80,000 from our dinner and silent auction to help fund lung cancer research.

All of this would not have been possible without the amazing assistance of our great sponsors, especially our Platinum sponsors: Jones Kelleher LLP, DeCotis Insurance Associates, and Mrs. Barbara Skeffington.

Please enjoy these photos from the event and we hope that you’ll be able to join us for next year’s gala.
