A look back at our 2018 Summer Breeze Dinner

The 2018 Summer Breeze dinner for AHM Youth and Family Services, hosted by the Kelsey Family at Gina Marie’s Restaurant in Hebron was a resounding success. For the eighth year in a row the Kelsey family and their staff have donated 100% of the proceeds from this annual gathering. The 2018 dinner raised $4,828 for our Youth Service Bureau, bringing the eight-year total to $35,493. The evening’s entertainment was the ever popular singer and guitarist Bruce John.

Mr. John is well known throughout the region for his philanthropic work and music, having helped many local charities like AHM. As has been past tradition, once again the AHM Board and Leadership Team honored one community member for their efforts to help improve the lives of local children. This year’s honoree was Mr. Scott Leslie, the Principal at RHAM High School. Mr. Leslie was recognized for his three decades of commitment to working with our Youth Service Bureau and Family Resource Center. Special thanks to Troy and Gina Kelsey and their staff for years of philanthropic support through this dinner and of course a special thank you to Bruce John for a wonderful evening of music!
