We are pleased to announce that our 25th Anniversary dinner celebration is scheduled for October 18th. Join us for a repeat performance by New York Times best-selling author Andre Dubus III. He spoke at a fundraiser for TLC two years ago. He made a deep and lasting impression on those who attended as he retold the story of his upbringing in post-industrial Massachusetts and shared about the ONE person who made a difference in his life…his boxing coach!
