CoveCare Center Announces Annual Dinner Dance Benefit


Carmel, NY—CoveCare Center, formerly known as Putnam Family and Community Services, invites the community to attend its annual Dinner Dance Benefit on Friday, October 13th from 6:30-10:30 p.m. Held at the Salem Golf Club, this year’s event marks the 20th anniversary of the agency, which will celebrate not only the past two decades of serving the community, but also its new name and commitment to those in need.

CoveCare Center provides mental health, substance use, and supportive services for adults, children, families, and seniors. All proceeds from the Dinner Dance directly benefit CoveCare Center’s programs and make it possible for the agency to continue to offer accessible and affordable services.

“The IMAGINE Dinner Dance Benefit is our largest fundraiser of the year. It is a wonderful night and a great opportunity for the community to come together and support what we at CoveCare Center believe and advocate for every day: that there is always hope and recovery is always possible,” stated Chief Executive Officer Diane E. Russo.

At the event, CoveCare Center will present its Annual Sid Gibson IMAGINE Award to CareMount Medical in recognition of the recent innovative partnership between the two agencies to provide integrated health care in the community. The evening will also include a special guest speaker who will share his experiences and explain how CoveCare has supported his recovery.

The evening will include dinner, dancing, and music by Tony T Entertainment featuring The City Express Band. An exciting silent auction will be held, including a host of valuable items, such as sports and entertainment tickets, vacation accommodations, gift baskets, and more. Raffle prizes include an Apple iPad, a $200 gift certificate, and an Amazon Echo. Raffle tickets can be purchased at, at the front desk of the agency, or by contacting [email protected].
