Save the date for GELF dinner: Sat., April 1, 2017

Stuck for holiday gift ideas? Treat your friends to an evening out with GELF!

The holidays are coming up, and we’ve all been there…. trying to get those last few presents for people who are hard-to-buy-for.  Well now we have a gift idea for you that’s also for a great cause!

Tickets for the Jennifer Price Global Education Leadership Fund’s (GELF) annual benefit dinner are on sale. For those of you who don’t know about the GELF, it’s a fantastic scholarship program that supports low-income Newton students in taking advantage of international opportunities. The evening is a not-to-be-missed community event, featuring an amazing 5-course gourmet meal (cooked from scratch on-site!), paired fine beers and wines (featuring Sam Adams beer pairings, a major hit last year!), dancing (with a great live band featuring our own Katani Sumner), 150 like-minded community members, table service by Newton principals, and a raffle.

This year’s benefit dinner will take place on Saturday, April 1st, 2017 from 6:30-10:30pm at Newton North High School.  Tickets are not only a great holiday gift, but also a great way to wrap up your charitable giving for 2016, since GELF is under the 501(c)(3) umbrella of the Newton Schools Foundation. And if you buy before February 18, 2016, you’ll get 2 free tickets to an exclusive, early-bird-only raffle!

You can buy tickets online here (scroll down to the bottom for the PayPal button) or send a $150/person check (made payable to Newton Schools Foundation with GELF in the memo line) to Newton Schools Foundation, ATTN: Diane Greer, P.O. Box 590020, Newton Centre, MA 02459.

Whether you are coming or not, please consider donating to Support a Teacher to attend the event ($100/person) or making a tax-deductible donati0n, all possible here

Thank you!
