Pam & Rich's 3rd Annual Stay at Home Gala A Project of 2017 Night of A Thousand "Dinner Parties"

This is the 3rd Year that Rich and I are hosting our "Stay at Home Gala" to support the amazing work that A Wider Circle is doing in our community.

You probably know that A Wider Circle now has 4 core programs: Provision of Basic Needs, Neighborhood Partnerships, Workforce Development and Wraparound Support.But did you know that in 2016 A Wider Circle furnished the homes of 16,000 children and adults, and that 20,000 volunteers helped make this and all of the work they do possible? With your support, Rich and I want to help raise funds and awareness so the team and volunteers can do even more.

We also understand that you may be a bit weary of getting dressed up to attend fundraising events, so we're inviting you to stay where you are and donate whatever you can this month when funds will be matched by several very generous donors. In addition, several businesses are donating a portion of their proceeds to help raise even more. On June 5, Fenwick Beer and Wine (fenwickbeerandwine.com) will donate 10% of their proceeds all day—so you can support AWC while stocking up for the summer. On June 10, you have several options: Improbable Comedy's- Night of a Thousand Laughs (improbablecomedy.com) will donate 10% of ticket sales, The Parkway Deli (theparkwaydeli.com) will donate 10% of proceeds, and Alfio La Trattoria (alfios.com) will donate 10% of proceeds when you mention A Wider Circle. On June 15, Blue 44 (blue44dc.com) will donate 20% with this flyer (http://awidercircle.org/wp-content/uploads/A-Wider-Circle-at-Blue-44.pdf). And for those of you who do stay home, Mark will broadcast an update via Facebook Live at 8 pm on Saturday, June 10 which you can access through www.awidercircle.org.

If you have already contributed in other ways we are truly grateful. If you haven't (or if you would like to contribute more), please consider donating now, on June 10 or anytime, but keep in mind that donations received before July 1 will be matched. Payment plans are available if you'd like to spread your donation over a period of time. Together we can take a large step forward in the movement to end poverty. To donate you can click on this page or mail your check to A Wider Circle, 9159C Brookville Rd, Silver Spring, MD 20910.

Rich and I thank you for your past and ongoing support!
