Out & About: Bryan’s House Patron Party

Celebrity Chef Kent Rathbun welcomed more than 75 patrons to his home to celebrate the success of last fall’s Bryan’s House Power of You 2023 Awards Luncheon.

The October event raised $320,000, luncheon chairs Regina Bruce and Dr. Carla Russo announced Dec. 11 during the Patron Party and Check Presentation.

Linda White, Bryan’s House director of finance, confirmed that those net proceeds are by far the most monies ever raised from a single fundraising event in the nonprofit’s 35-year history.

Dr. Keith Mankin, board chair, presented the Employee of the Year Award to Marilyn Quinones, in celebration of her 19 years of service and introduced the new Bryan’s House CEO Jennifer Searles.

Bryan’s House provides children with special needs and their families with case management, educational, therapeutic, and medically supported care.
