Reach for the Green Golf Tournament

September 13, 2016

The annual Reach for the Green Golf Tournament in Memory of Mary & Donald C. Ciancio is Community Reach Center’s primary fundraising event. This year marked the 36th year of this community tradition.

The tournament is a legacy event. Donald Ciancio started it in 1980 in honor of his mother Mary. Mary Ciancio was a champion of mental health and one of the founding supporters of Community Reach Center. Don mirrored his mother’s dedication and generosity to Community Reach Center by reaching out to the community to encourage participation in the tournament.

By embracing and respecting the diversity of our community, Mary and Don created a legacy of caring compassionately for others. Their dedication to quality care for all in need is a capstone for our Board, Leadership and nearly 500 employees today.

We are grateful for the community’s support of the Reach for the Green Tournament and the direct impact we can make together in the lives of others.

Community Reach Center Legislative Breakfast

November 16, 2016

Each year, Community Reach Center brings together our key community leaders and partners, elected officials, media and our employees to increase awareness of the diverse and vast needs for mental health care within our community.  As your community mental health center, we must often advocate for people and the programs and services they need in order for them to live the best life possible. Join us this year as we have Lieutenant Governor, Donna Lynne as our keynote speaker.

Our Board of Directors and Leadership team are committed to ensuring that we speak up, that we plead the case of those who cannot, and champion the cause that all individuals have the opportunity to receive quality care.

By educating our community and elected officials on the successful, innovative programs offered at Community Reach Center, we bring awareness to the positive impacts their support of mental health care has on individuals, families, friends and our overall society. Further, we build an understanding that many people struggle with mental health issues, and that there is a continuous need to support programs and services that will provide real help to those in need.

To sponsor, register or attend this event, please email our Community and External Relations division at or call (303) 853-3472.
