Wow! We are overwhelmed with gratitude by the number of supporters and amount raised at our 2023 Tree of Life Gala, chaired by Carla and Cole Dawson & Clare and Scooter Smith.
This year’s event honored NFCC’s Executive Director, Mary Elizabeth Hand, who has been a part of the counseling center since 2013 and is a childhood friend of the center’s namesake, Nick Finnegan. Nick’s parents, Susan and Bill Finnegan had the honor of bestowing the 2023 Angels Among Us Award to Mary Elizabeth with Susan saying,
“She walks around making the counseling center comfy and cozy because she wants it to feel like home for the clients and her staff; not to mention the amazing work she does. We are just so in awe. She was hand-picked by God, no question about it and to watch her do her thing is amazing.”
