President of the Retreat announces first ever East End Social Services Summit

The Retreat finished 2009 in the black, primarily due to the extraordinary generosity of the current board, and other community donors, but still faces a deficit in 2010!

We realize that not every non-profit has this as an option, and has not been as fortunate as us in achieving this goal. However, we can’t do this on an ongoing basis either.

These are unique times and problems which offer all of us the challenge to find new and creative methods to achieve our mutual goals. In order for us to do so and better serve the citizens of our community, collaboration needs to occur. We need one another now more than ever.

The Retreat cordially invites you to an East End Social Service Summit on 1/22/09, from 5:30PM to 7:30PM, at the Richard J. Demato Gallery at #90 Main Street, Sag Harbor. Please respond quickly as space will be limited. Please RSVP to Kathy Schad of The Retreat at (631) 329-4398 or

At the summit you will learn more about The Retreat’s mission and vision for the future. You will also have the opportunity to share and discuss the purpose and goals of your non-profit affiliations, and hopefully we can learn, and grow through sharing with one another. We seek a symbiotic relationship wherein we can join together and work collaboratively on activities that will help the greater good of our community. We believe working together will yield an enhanced mutual success beyond what any of us can do alone.

I urge you to get involved and to add to the quality of life, right here in our community. Help the needy women and children that are not sharing your current lifestyle and are certainly not living the American Dream. Together we can do more.

Please choose to make a difference in our community, it will not only change their life, but I promise it will improve yours too! I know, I’ve done it.

Sincerely, Richard J. Demato, Board President
