Vinfen Connecticut held its 18th annual Winter Wonderland at Our Lady of Sorrows in Hartford, CT on January 18. More than 100 persons served, their family members, and staff attended the undersea-themed event. Guests were encouraged to wear blue and green and take group photos in front of a blue sparkly backdrop. A DJ provided music for dancing and dinner was catered by one of Vinfen CT’s Day Programs.
During the dancing, the night turned romantic as Terrance, a person served by Vinfen CT, proposed to his girlfriend Jasmine, who also is served by Vinfen CT. Terrance asked the DJ to play the ballad All My Life by K-Ci & JoJo. He then got down on one knee in the middle of the dance floor and popped the question. Jasmine said yes and happily wore her engagement ring. The happy couple danced the night away among family and friends.
The lovely, nautical night would not have been possible without donations from local vendors and the support of volunteers.
