WESTPORT — Despite having to move under the auspices of Homes With Hope following last year’s state cuts, Project Return is still going strong.

Saturday night the long-standing group home hosted a “Night on the River” fundraiser at the Saugatuck Rowing Club.

“This is the first time that we’ve done this event,” said Laura Bard, consultant, “and we’re just thrilled with the turnout.”

The event, which organizer hope becomes an annual tradition, invited attendees to wear only summer white.

Most all of the 175 attendees did just that.
