Trending...
NORTH FALMOUTH, Mass., Dec. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Quell Foundation proudly declares the 2020 Masquerade Ball, presented by U.S. Bank and Zudy, a huge success.  Approaching $400,000, proceeds from this year's event will continue to fund the Foundation's prestigious scholarship program, and two population-health focused awareness campaigns.

The one-hour program featured a unique blend of live and pre-recorded speakers from, a one-of-a-kind wine auction, and raffle for a Peloton Bike+.

"This year, we identified a significant opportunity to support the mental health care needs of our First Responders and our Frontline Healthcare workers. These two professional communities have dedicated their lives to protecting and saving ours, too often at the cost of their own," said Quell Foundation CEO and Founder Kevin M. Lynch. "In the absence of our more formal event, The Quell Foundation sponsors and donors showed up in full force to underwrite our students, first responders, and frontline medical professionals. They have truly set a new standard for virtual galas and we are grateful."
