Since it began, The Four Seasons Ball has been bringing people together to help support The Kennedy Center's Residential Services. This year the Four Seasons Ball’s theme is “Changing Seasons” which is fitting for the changes The Kennedy Center is facing. The continued challenges with state funding along with the changing needs of the populations served, have shifted the agency’s focus to more sustainable efforts that will insure quality, comprehensive services today and in the future.

On Saturday, November 16th at Brooklawn Country Club in Fairfield, we will continue the tradition of community and celebrate the event’s 55th year. 

A constant that will remain with the event is the recognition of our Tribute Journal Honorees.  It is with great pleasure that we announce this year’s Honorees, Ms. Cindi Bigelow, President & CEO of Bigelow Tea and Bigelow Tea . Ms. Bigelow and Bigelow Tea have had a long-standing partnership with The Kennedy Center spreading over three decades and through this commitment, has made a defining impact to individuals with disabilities.  

So please join us to toast Cindi and Bigelow Tea, dance to the music of "Atomic Funk", catch-up with friends  and continue the legacy of philanthropy started over fifty years ago.

EVENT HISTORY: The first Four Seasons Ball was held in 1965 to raise funds to renovate both the first group home for men and the first for women with intellectual disabilities in Connecticut. Since that time, The Kennedy Center has grown its Residential Services to include 17 residential sites varying in living arrangements from 24-hr support to independent apartment living. Along with these sites, Residential Services also provides Respite Programs, Caregiver and Family Supports.
