Shelton residents help organize Four Seasons Ball for charity

Two Shelton residents are helping to organize the Kennedy Center’s 50th annual Four Seasons Ball.

Dottie Kellersman and Cara Mocarski, both of Huntington, are on the committee putting together the event that will take place Saturday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. at Rolling Hills Country Club in Wilton. The first Four Seasons Ball took place at the same location.

Robert and Barbara Scinto of Fairfield, who have substantial commercial real estate holdings in Shelton, are co-chairs of the ball.

Honors philanthropist from Easton

This year’s gala will honor philanthropist Dorothy Larson of Easton, who was responsible for starting the first group homes for people with disabilities in Connecticut. Larson also is a founder of the Four Seasons Ball.

The theme of the 2014 ball is “Together We Can Do More.” Sponsors with Shelton connections include R.D.  Scinto Inc., Winter Bros. Waste Systems of Connecticut, People’s United Bank and BlumShapiro.

The event is black tie optional, with elegant attire requested. There will be a social hour with hors d’oeuvres, full-course dinner, and dancing until midnight to Big City Swing.

Tickets are $200 each and proceeds will benefit the Kennedy Center‘s residential services for people with disabilities. Call 203-365-8522, ext. 213 or go to to order tickets.

The Kennedy Center’s residential services for people with disabilities include 16 group homes, a supported living option program, family support and respite service, and Caring for the Caregiver Program that offers support for parents of family members who are developmentally disabled.
