It is with deep sadness that we announce the cancellation of the Annual Dinner Celebration for the first time in 30 years. This is not a decision we have taken lightly and was made with input and support from the Dinner Auction Committee, the Rutland Dismas House Council, and guidance from the Vermont Health Commissioner.

We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment to our community as the event represents so much more than fundraising; it is a time to connect and see many of our Dismas family all in one place, at one time, united for one common cause of helping our residents succeed. We will miss you this year however we are very excited to announce our 2021 Dinner Celebration date – June 6, 2021, and we hope you will join us then!

We are most grateful for the words of love and encouragement, and still we notice the very palpable absence of our Dismas family everywhere from committee meetings, to dinner, and especially our Annual Celebration. What a party we will have next year! Thank you so much for your continued support.
