Sep 27 - Harvest Moon Gala Fundraiser to Benefit Rett's Roost

Shilo Farm Eco B&B, 88 Beach Rd, Eliot, ME

4:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Gather at Shilo Farm Eco B&B for the Harvest Moon Gala to support Rett's Roost. This farm to table dinner and auction will feature home cooked, local fare prepared by Greg Leifester, Executive Chef at theYork Golf and Tennis Club, unlimted drinks, and music from the Sean Farias Jazz Trio. Guests will have the chance to make final bids on the online auction items including gift certificates for massages, a surf board and lessons, artwork, apparel, and a trip to South Africa. 

The Harvest Moon Gala will benefit Rett's Roost, a sanctuary for families with a child affected by cancer. Rett's Roost is a non-profit organization established by Jim and Deana Cavan in memory of their son Everett "Rett" Cavan who was diagnosed with cancer at just six months old. Malignant rhabdoid tumors are very rare and agressive, and despite months of chemotherapy at Bostons Children's Hospital, Rett passed away on February 22, 2015 at home, in the arms of his loving family. 

Jim Cavan worked as the Director of Media at the Green Alliance for five years, and although he continues to write for publications in the area, Jim and Deana have made it their mission to honor Rett. Through Rett's Roost, the Cavans provide retreats for families with children affected by cancer and have created a loving and supportive community to ease their experience with the disease. Guests enjoy nutritious meals and daily classes in art, yoga, meditation, healthy habits, therapeutic play and learning, and mindfulness towards the natural and spiritual world–holistic means of healing that treat the body and soul.

All proceeds from the Harvest Moon Gala will go to Rett's Roost to allow more children and families to enjoy free retreats at Shilo Farm Eco B&B.
