The Fifth Annual Open Your Heart Fundraising Dinner and Concert for the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities raised $36,000.
According to a release from the cluster, a non-profit organization that provides for the basic food, clothing, personal care and housing needs for residents living in poverty, the event held at Sunnybrook Ballroom in September featured local artists Maggie Riker, Davie Heffner, Jason Switzer and Myra Forrest.
Through the generosity of the event sponsors: Video Ray, Cody Systems and Richard and Paula Dhein, along with many other sponsors and guests that made direct donations, bid on auction items and purchased raffle tickets, $36,000 was raised.
These funds will allow PCRC to assist Pottstown residents struggling financially to maintain adequate food and clothing for their families, receive educational services to gain greater stability, as well as providing home heating oil when the cost is more than a family can afford.
PCRC wishes to thank all those that made the event a great success. To see photos of the event please visit PCRC’s website at www.pottstowncluster.org.
PCRC’s 50th anniversary is in 2017 and the 50th Gala will be held on October 7, 2017 at Sunnybrook Ballroom.
