The Marie A. Russo Neighborhood Center Institute is proud to announce that the 16th Annual Auction & Dinner in support of The Neighborhood Center, Inc. will be held on Friday, November 16th, 2018 at Harts Hill Inn. The event, which runs from 6-9pm is action packed with both a silent auction and live auction. Over 300 generous people attend this event and it sells out each year.
Tickets, which are on sale now, are only $40 each and include dinner and a chance at a $1,000 door prize. There are over 50+ fantastic silent auction items and baskets to bid on that include generous donations from many local businesses. The live auction will include some unique artwork and some great get-a-ways.
Funds raised from this event each year support The Neighborhood Centers child and family programs. Quality, affordable childcare is imperative but is difficult for the middle class to afford, it is impossible for working poor families to afford. Without help from our donors, grants and foundations, the children would be at risk physically, socially, educationally as parents may have to resort to child care considered illegal by NYS.
“The Marie A. Russo Neighborhood Center Institute, which is the fundraising arm of the Neighborhood Center, is proud to host this event for our childcare programs. The event brings together supporters of The Neighborhood Center for a fun night of high spirited bidding, but regardless if you win in the Auction, everyone leaves feeling like a winner.” – Jeff Gornick, President of the Marie A. Russo Neighborhood Center Institute Board of Directors
