The gala co-chairs are Margot Michalski, Adriana Ospina and Martha Perry. All three have very strong connections to Abilis. Michalski, of Greenwich, is an Abilis Board member and her brother Ian participates in one of Abilis’ day programs. Ospina, of Greenwich, and Mrs. Perry of New Canaan, are both mothers of young adults in the Abilis Life Skills Program in Greenwich. The co-chairs’ passion and commitment to Abilis is fueling their desire to make Spring for Abilis a fun, festive, and successful event for the extended community.
