Bauer Family Dedicates Activity Wing

Bauer Dedication

The Bauer Family unveils the new sign at the entrance to the newly dedicated Bauer Activity Wing

On Sunday, January 22nd Friendship Circle celebrated the dedication of the Bauer Activity Wing with a breakfast, inspirational program and dedication ceremony.

Craig & Lainie Bauer and their three children Aidan, Mac & Arielle, were honored by Friendship Circle’s directors, Rabbi Levi & Bassie Shemtov, and a small group of close family and friends for a generous donation that will sustain and further develop their curriculum of 30 weekly and seasonal programs for individuals with special needs.

Rabbi Levi Shemtov, Director of Friendship Circle said, “Friendship Circle began with a small core of generous supporters. Over the years we have expanded the organization with the support of thousands of people in the community…the Bauer family wanted their support to continue our existing programs. It is exciting to be able to introduce this very generous family into the group of founding supporters of the Friendship Circle.”
