Join us for "Love Bites" benefiting Katy's Courage

Dear Friend,

This month, I hope you’ll join me in supporting Katy’s Courage at the “Love Bites” Benefit on January 23rd. Katy’s Courage is a CMEE partner organization using the power of play to help children experiencing grief or loss. Started by Brigid Collins and Jim Stewart in memory of their 12-year-old daughter, Katy who passed away from a rare form of liver cancer, Katy’s Kids @ CMEE provides play therapy to help children process and understand their grief.

Families attending this special after-school event will also experience a live video feed directly from the planet’s surface!

My Favorite Things

CMEE's Development Officer, Lara Sweeney

Between planning fundraisers, writing grant proposals, and soliciting donations (not to mention making sure her children finish their homework), there's never a dull moment during Lara's days. She was kind enough to take a quick break from writing e-mails and fielding phone calls to share her three favorite things about CMEE:

Making A Difference - Because the East End is such a tight-knit and close community, it really feels like the Museum has an impact...I can see how CMEE benefits both children and adults because I interact with our patrons at school, at the library, even at the grocery store!

The Atmosphere - My kids love it here. My husband loves it here. I love it here! I'm incredibly grateful I get to work in an environment and with people that make it easy to smile. I mean, my office overlooks a miniature golf course! How many people can say that? 

Peconic Family Fun Day - As a Sag Harbor native and nature buff, this has long been my favorite community event. Every spring—in early May—over a dozen non-profits join us at the Museum to present a festival that educates kids about the East End environment. I brought my kids even before I worked here!
