Upcoming fundraisers will benefit those in need

March 18, 2017 by  

There are two fundraisers coming up next month in the Laurel area that will benefit two groups that provide programs and services to the needy.

The first event will be the 3rd Evening of Hope Gala. It will raise funds for Centre Pointe Counseling, which provides affordable counseling services. The special guest speaker for the evening will be Jeff Elkins. The evening will consist of a dinner and a silent auction, together with live jazz music and dancing. Tickets are $75 each and table for eight are available. Call 800-491-5369 to learn more or visit the Eventbrite page.

The next one is the 4th annual banquet of the Dreams Fulfillment Foundation, Inc. Funds raised will go the Dreams Fulfillment Academy in Liberia. Guests will enter the event over a red carpet. Once inside, they will enjoy dinner and drinks.

A keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Sylvester Okere of the United People for African Congress. There will also be live entertainment and plenty of networking opportunities. Tickets cost $30 each or $60 for VIP, which includes a souvenir and reserved seating. Call Duncan at 240-988-2724 for more information.

Both of these events will likely attract people from all over the area, including nearby Laurel. Programs provided to guests will probably be provided by local booklet printing companies.
