Winter Gala to raise funds for Pentucket schools

WEST NEWBURY — The Pentucket Education Foundation will host its third annual Winter Gala fundraiser on Saturday, Jan. 26, at 7 p.m. at Veasey Park, 201 Washington St., Groveland.

New to this year’s event include a performance by the band Don’t Call Me Shirley, a display of artwork by local students and a beer tasting offered by local brewery Riverwalk, which will be added to the wine and spirit tastings. A portion of the sale of all wine, beer and spirits at the event will go to support the foundation.

To date, the foundation has awarded more than $135,000 to support a variety of educational initiatives in Pentucket’s six schools.

Winter Gala tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. Admission includes appetizers with a cash bar.
