- OCTOBER 21 -


The Gala will be held at the Beechwood Hotel

on Saturday, October 21 | Doors will open at 5:30

We will have a cash cocktail hour during which time people are invited to visit the silent auction and raffle area. We have some great auction items including theatre tickets, restaurant gift certificates, and even a hockey stick signed by the Boston Bruins. Raffle tickets will be sold for 12 great baskets full of goodies. We will be entertained during this time by Willie Sordillo who is a great jazz saxophonist.

We will then move on to a great buffet dinner featuring steak tips, chicken piccata and eggplant parmesan among other goodies. There will be plenty of time to interact with each other and with our asylum seekers. Following dinner we will have a very short program where you will get to hear some of the asylum seekers’ stories and hear about some of the people who have helped us along the way.

And, then you will be treated to Dale LePage and the Manhattans. Dale has won Entertainer of the Year for Central Massachusetts for 6 years. He is an amazing musician and he and his group get rave reviews wherever they play. And of course we will dance!
