Cecropia Strong gala set for Sept. 26

Cecropia Strong is set to host its third annual gala and auction on Tuesday, Sept. 26, at The Landing Restaurant, 81 Front St. The event begins at 5 p.m. and aims to raise funds for the organization’s mission to support people with physical disabilities.

Founded by Julie Hahnke, a Marblehead bagpiper, author and management consultant who herself survived a stroke, Cecropia Strong currently funds five programs. These initiatives include monthly gift donations to disabled patients at Spaulding Rehab Hospital in Boston, sponsorship of assistive technology events at universities, grants to help people with physical disabilities regain their driver’s licenses, aphasia treatment programs and therapeutic riding grants.

Tickets for the event are priced at $100 each and can be purchased online at Crepcopiastrong.org or by mailing checks to Cecropia Strong, 141 Elm St., Apt. 2, Marblehead, 01945. Donations in any amount are welcome.
