When You Wish Upon a Fundraising Dinner...

Chorale 33 performs at the second annual Fundraising Dinner for the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities.

Blogger's Note: The following was sent to us by the good people at the Pottstown Cluster.

The second annual Fundraising Dinner to benefit the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities was held October 4, 2013 at the Berean Bible Church on High Street in Sanatoga. 

This year’s event, titled "Wish Upon a Star," nearly doubled last year’s total: already raising over $39,000 with pledges still coming in.

There was more than just dinner going on at this year's Fundraising Dinner.
School District, emceed the program. Catering for this special event was provided by Pottstown favorite, Bause Catered Events.

A live auction, hosted by Paul Prince, of Prince and Kurtas Law Firm, awarded NASCAR Pit Passes, Blair Winery Tour and private dinner, a NYC Fashion tour and Flyers Lithograph to the highest bidders.

The highlight of the evening was an encore performance by local talent Maggie Riker -- this year being joined by her equally talented brother, Dave Heffner. 

Also returning to the stage was 12-year old Madison Kershner, who gave a touching performance of “When You Wish Upon A Star.” 

The evening’s entertainment was rounded out with performances by The Sounds of Sunnybrook Dance Band and Chorale 33.

The evening marked the debut of an 8-minute video highlighting the mission, services and great need for the services the outreach center provides.

The event was supported by many local sponsors, including Boscov’s, PMMC, Cody Systems, the Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation and The Hill School.
