Near & Far Aid holds 22nd annual Spring Gala March 3

Near & Far Aid will hold their 22nd annual Spring Gala, with the theme “An Ultimate Rooftop Party Experience, Where the Sky’s the Limit” on March 3, at the flagship Mitchells store in Westport. The gala raises funds granted by Near & Far Aid to Fairfield County’s poverty-fighting organizations.

“With this extraordinary event, the sky’s the limit,” said Gala Co-Chairs Jaclyn Gailhard Picarillo and Katie Dresch. “We will transport guests to the ultimate New York City rooftop party, complete with world-class food and drink, fashion show, luxury silent and live auctions, and a spectacular live concert, all while raising awareness and funds to help those in need in our area.”

“The 2017 Near & Far Aid Gala at Mitchells is going to be a fabulous party and we’re anticipating another record breaking evening,” added Joan Panagos, president of Near & Far Aid. “It’s our biggest fundraiser of the year, and the money we raise goes to help fund programs that fight poverty and help improve the lives of those in need in Fairfield County.”

Tickets for the Spring Gala will be available for sale beginning in December.
