Fun ways to support Chrysalis Center and help transform lives!
In light of the recent global outbreak of COVID-19 and reports from the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health authorities, the Chrysalis Center’s Butterfly Bash Committee has decided to move our in-person Bash to a VIRTUAL event this year on Friday, October 22 from 7:00-8:00pm. The health, safety and well-being of our guests, staff, and volunteers will always be our highest priority.
The Butterfly Bash is the signature fundraising event for Chrysalis Center, raising much needed funds to advance the organization’s mission to provide supportive services to assist people in need to transform their lives.
Our theme this year is “Celebrating the Beauty of Transformation”, and the event raises awareness and critical funds to support the critical work Chrysalis Center does every day to help transform the lives of more than 1,450 individuals across Connecticut. As one of the State’s leading organization serving people living with mental illness and returning from homeless populations, Chrysalis Center has been working tirelessly since the onset of the pandemic to ensure clients’ needs have been met. Critical funding is needed now more than ever to help support programs and services.
Serving at this year’s Co-Masters of Ceremonies are the fabulous power-couple of Kara Sundlun, WFSB-TV Channel 3 anchor and Dennis House, WTNH-TV 8 anchor. Wonderful friends and supporters of Chrysalis Center, Kara and Dennis will help lead an evening of dinner, entertainment and auctions benefit Chrysalis Center and expand our mission.
