Every year, the O'Connor Creevy Family hosts Dudefest, a benefit for Misericordia. Dudefest's primary goal is to support the place that enriches the lives of more than 500 children and adults who call Misericordia home. All proceeds from the event go directly to Misericordia.
Misericordia provides housing; meaningful jobs; physical and occupational therapy; and a genuine social life for people with mild to profound developmental disabilities from all racial, religious and socio-economic backgrounds.
Our sister and cousin, Bree (the Dude), has been at Misericordia since 2010 and she loves her home. Misericordia is an incredibly well-kept, well-cared-for place that provides respect and kindness to everyone who lives there.
