On Friday March 3, Near & Far Aid will host its 22nd annual Spring Gala to raise funds to be granted to Fairfield County's poverty-fighting organizations. The event begins at 7 p.m., at the flagship Mitchells store in Westport and only has a limited number of tickets available for purchase. This year's theme, "Sky’s the Limit — the Ultimate (indoor) Rooftop Party," will feature food, dancing, fashion and the area's most philanthropic partygoers of 2017.
“We are thrilled to announce that Gala tickets are available online,” said Gala co-chairs Jaclyn Picarillo and Katie Dresch. “We are one step closer to this amazing evening and are optimistic that we will surpass our fundraising goals. The support from sponsors and local vendors has been tremendous.” Near & Far Aid President, Joan Panagos adds, “Gala brings out all the stops! It's our biggest fundraiser of the year and a night people look forward to because they can make a real difference while having a fabulous time."
