Abilis Youth Board and the Greenwich Junior United Way Host 5th Annual Together We Shine Red Carpet event for Abilis

Formal Clothing Donations Accepted in Advance of the Dance
 An evening of inclusion and celebration! 


On Saturday, February 24, 2024, the First Presbyterian Church in Greenwich will be transformed into a winter wonderland for the fifth annual Together We Shine event put on by the Abilis Youth Board and the Greenwich Junior United Way as a special red-carpet event for the Abilis community. Together We Shine features dinner, dancing, music, and its signature red carpet entrance. Abilis community members and area teens (ages 14 to 18) attend in formal attire and dance the night away! In preparation for the event, Abilis is seeking formal clothing donations to be dropped off at the Abilis headquarters in Greenwich by February 17th. Donations of formal dresses in sizes small through 3XL and men’s suits in any size are accepted at Abilis at 50 Glenville Street, Greenwich, Connecticut, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For additional information or questions on the formal attire donations, please contact Lisa Bria at


Together We Shine is an inclusive formal dance and party that is put on each year by the Abilis Youth Board and the Greenwich Junior United Way. The event brings together area high school students and Abilis community members for a fun night celebrating the differences, abilities, needs, and dreams in everyone.


“Together We Shine is one of our Abilis community’s favorite events of the year,” noted Amy Montimurro, CEO and president of Abilis. “Individuals of all abilities get dressed up, walk the red carpet, and spend time with their friends from Abilis and the local high school students who help make the evening so special. Support from the local high school students provides an opportunity for our youth to understand the importance of giving back to the community, celebrating diversity, and improving the quality of life for people of all abilities.” 


“Teens from Greenwich Jr. United Way and the Abilis Youth Board come together and showcase an event that celebrates our diversity while teaching the importance of giving back to your community,” noted David Rabin, CEO of Greenwich United Way. “We are proud of these teens and their adult program managers and volunteers who have stepped up to make Together We Shine a premier annual event.”
