Friendship Fest nets $10,000 for Friendship Home

Friendship Home’s 2nd Annual Super Funky Friendship Fest, a benefit concert featuring The Aldous Collins Band, New York City singer, songwriter and musician Sara Leone and local band Phatt James raised $10,000 for the Norwell nonprofit organization. More than 300 Friendship Home supporters danced the night away at The River Club Music Hall in Scituate on January 20th in support of Friendship Home’s mission to enrich the lives of people with developmental disabilities and their families by providing quality respite programs and services. Programs include its Home Away from Home overnight respite center, Bridges to Work vocational program and social recreational programs.

This year’s event sponsors included Real Living Coastal Real Estate, Alex Clark Jr. and Peak Physical Therapy. “We are so grateful to all of our sponsors and attendees for raising $10,000 for Friendship Home. Our Circle of Friends continues to grow with friends who will help us spread the word about our organization,” said Linda Malone, Director of Development.

This is the second time that The Aldous Collins Band and Sara Leone participated in this event. “It is our pleasure to perform for such a worthy cause, which helps so many families in the South Shore and beyond. If you know someone with a developmental disability, you should definitely reach out to Friendship Home,” Collins said.
