Centerboard a nonprofit, charitable organization located in downtown Lynn MA, is holding its first annual fundraising Gala entitled “Whatever It Takes” to support our mission of revitalizing communities by investing in their people and places.

“Whatever It Takes” is also our motto that applies to our commitment to the Greater Lynn community.  Here at Centerboard, we will do whatever it takes to help families and children receive what they need to get back on their feet.  We don’t just offer a hand-out, we provide families and children ways to become self-sufficient.

Please review our sponsorship levels and benefits.  We invite you to come share in an evening of philanthropy, learning and support for families and children who are currently experiencing homelessness.

Guest Auctioneer for the evening is Kathy Kingston, of Kingston Auction Company LLC.  Kathy has 28 years of experience working with nonprofit organizations and running successful auctions.  Not only will Kathy take us all on a fantastic ride through unbelievable auction items, but she will make sure we all have a barrel of fun while raising needed support for Centerboard’s valuable programs and services.

If you have questions about The Gala, or would like to find out more about Centerboard’s work, please contact me, or Centerboard’s Director of Development, Ray Pasciuto at 339-883-1383, or by email: rpasciuto@centerboard.org.
