Members of Day Kimball Healthcare’s Development department partnered with members of Putnam Bank to host a Celebrity Scoops Night on August 18 at Deary Brothers Mike’s Stand in Putnam. Many families came out to support the fundraising event, which raised $500 to benefit the Northeast Connecticut Cancer Fund of DKH.
Members of the Putnam Lions and LEO Clubs, QVCC Rotoract Club and the Putnam Rotary Club served as the Celebrity Scoopers, whose tips were donated to the cause.
Mike Deary, owner of Deary Brothers Mike’s Stand, generously donated the venue and raffle prizes and the restaurant’s staff assisted the lineup of Celebrity Scoopers by helping to scoop ice cream donated by Gifford’s Famous Ice Cream of Maine.
D.J. Sergio of Surround Sound Entertainment generously donated his time for the event and kept the crowd engaged throughout the night, entertaining guests and getting the kids involved in karaoke.
The following Putnam Bank staff members volunteered their time to help organize the event: Barbara Elliott, Eileen Piotroski, Jessica Reed, Lynn Bourque, Jacquie Williams, Paisley Gothreau and Melissa Steadman.
