Mark your calendar!

The Building a Dream Gala raises funds allowing us to continue to provide the highest quality programs for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Each year we present the Maria McTernan Leadership Award to either an individual or business that demonstrates a commitment to individuals with developmental disabilities and the Charles River Center. Additionally, we recognize a Charles River individual with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Numerous community businesses sponsor the event and approximately 400 individuals attend.
