To generate funding to help 3,000+ at-need students, EVSC Foundation is hosting the fourth annual Hangers benefit gala Saturday, February 29. The family-friendly event will take place at Cambridge Golf Course and will include dinner, a program, silent and live auctions. Single tickets to the event are $75, reserved table seating for eight is $600. All proceeds from the gala provide clothing (shoes, coats, uniforms) and hygiene kits for students facing barriers.
“There are a number of reasons families may need our support,” says Maureen Barton, EVSC Foundation executive director. “From house fires to homelessness, to housing or foster care transitions, we are able to act immediately to reduce strain on the family unit and help students stay focused on their education. $150 sponsors a child for an entire year. Community supporters who sponsor children enable us to step in quickly to help reduce a student’s time spent out of the classroom.”
The goal of this year’s Gala is to raise $30,000 that goes directly to clothe students.
Aside from attending, other ways to support the gala include donating an auction item, making a financial contribution, or dropping off new and gently-used clothing at the Hangers facility (located at the Academy for Innovative Studies/former North High School. To enter, please use door 27 on Wedeking Ave).
