The Seaport Inn & Marina donated function space for the Robby Thatcher Fundraiser to be held
Robby Thatcher was an athlete, a poet, a surfer and a musician. He grew up in Fairhaven, Massachusetts and attended Fairhaven public schools until his junior year. Robby was diagnosed with leukemia. He underwent chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant and enjoyed 13 months of remission before the leukemia came back..Robby relapsed. His second series of treatments were too much for his body to handle. Robby lost his battle with cancer on November 28, 2003.

His wonderful personality and amazing strength taught us what bravery truly is. In Robby's memory we reach out to families going through similar situations. We offer both financial and emotional support to these families. Our wish is to help. We give scholarships out to seniors at Fairhaven and New Bedford High school yearly.

"..Joe Morra and the staff at the Seaport Inn, thank you so very much for all your hard work to make this function a success" -Board of the Robby Thatcher Memorial Fund

Owen Allred Mission Appreciation from Better Community Living

Owen Allred Mission Appreciation from Better Community Living
"When Ms. Jami Franco of the Seaport Inn called to inform me that Mr. Bob Contreras was developing another charitable project related to servicemen missing in action, I was not surprisedat all.

Mr. Bob Contreras and The Seaport Inn has been one of Better Community Living, Inc.'s biggest supporters over the past five years. In this time, he has opened the doors of his facility at the Seaport Inn to host charitable events, as well as, holiday parties for the consumers at Better Community Living, Inc. Over the past years, these combined donations have a value of over ten thousand dollars.

Prior to Mr. Contreras' involvement with Better Community Living, Inc., we used to provide a holiday party for the consumers with a dinner, dancing and gifts for all the consumers at the expense of the agency. At one of the first holiday parties, Mr. Contreras came in and insisted that I did not acknowledge him as one of our contributors and refused to take any payment for the hall rental or the meals provided for that holiday party. He has continued that donation for the last several years which has enabled us to provide larger holiday gifts for the consumers that we support.

Better Community Living, Inc., a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, provides primarily residential
supports to adults with significant developmental disabilities as well as medical challenges. Our
agency has been part of the Greater New Bedford area for the past 25 years. The same consumers that we support have also been part of Better Community Living, Inc. going back for 25 years.

Many of the consumers at Better Community Living, Inc. have no family or have family out of
the area. This holiday party event each year is one of the largest social events for the agency. It is very touching to see so many people without family being able to enjoy generous gifts that Mr.Contreras has given them year after year.

Better Community Living, Inc. is very fortunate to have such a caring and giving person who has been so generous to the consumers served by our agency. If you have any other questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact me at 508.999.4300, Extension 111."

Thomas C. Riley, M.P.A.
