On May 11, more than 250 guests gathered in the Grand Pavilion of the Crowne Plaza Providence-Warwick to help raise money and support for Friends Way, a bereavement center for children and families.

The organization’s annual Diamonds in the Sky gala raised more than $64,000 and celebrated its accomplishments as attendees dined and danced throughout the night. The event also featured live music, a silent auction and the presentation of the Dr. Michael Wiggins Community Leadership Award to this year’s recipient, Dr. Henry Sachs III.

“It is an inspiration to see the outpouring of support year after year for our organization,” said Carolyn Kyle, executive director of Friend’s Way. “We are so thankful to the community who has embraced our presence, the volunteers and staff who continue to carry out our mission and the friends and supporters who, through their generosity, help us keep the doors open.”
