Julie Hahnke and Cecropia Strong will host the second annual Gala & Auctions at the Masons’ Philanthropic Lodge in Marblehead, with proceeds funding the organization’s mission to help and provide hope for those who are physically disabled.
Hahnke (Marblehead bagpiper, author, and management consultant) knows what it is to be suddenly physically disabled, and that’s why she established Cecropia Strong.
Five years ago, Hahnke suffered a stroke. She lay on the floor of her apartment for three days. In those three days, her stroke took a serious turn. But she fought back and has made considerable gains towards recovery.
