Port 305 Restaurant in Marina Bay and Mix 104.1’s Kennedy Elsey recently hosted a wine tasting benefit that raised more than $6,000 to assist South Shore Mental Health’s financially disadvantaged clients. The event drew nearly 100 guests who gathered to support South Shore Mental Health and enjoy an evening of fine wine, exceptional food, and the chance to win live auction and raffle prizes.
“For too many of our clients, struggling to make ends meet is an added burden to their recovery,” said South Shore Mental Health President and CEO Harry Shulman. “Thanks to the generosity of Port 305’s Kristie Henriksen, her wine vendors, Kennedy Elsey, and everyone here tonight, we can help these deserving folks provide basic provisions for their families so that they can focus on treatment.” The evening’s event marked the fourth time that Port 305 and Kennedy Elsey have joined forces to raise funds to help South Shore Mental Health clients.
Since 1926, South Shore Mental Health has been building hope and changing lives for children born with developmental disabilities, and children, teens, and adults living with mental illness. Today, we have more than 700 employees in Quincy, Marshfield, Plymouth, and Wareham, and our early intervention and mental health treatment and recovery programs reach 16,000 people from Boston to Cape Cod annually.
