PASC's Golden Apple Gala Set for March 12

The West Chester Swing Kings will provide the music for the 2016 Golden Apple Gala on March 12.

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the Pottstown Area Senior Center.

The third annual Golden Apple Gala is just one month away. This exciting event raises money for the Pottstown Area Seniors’ Center as they work to support seniors in the greater Pottstown area.

“We are planning another exciting event,” said Brian Parkes, executive director of the senior center. “Attendees will be treated to some great music, and we have a local award-winning couple demonstrating ballroom dancing.”

This year’s event will be held on Saturday, March 12 at Brookside Country Club in Pottstown.
