All-Day Benefit Event For In Hopedale

On Saturday, September 24, the Hopedale Unitarian Parish will be hosting an all-day event to support the relief efforts in Ukraine, including a family festival during the day and an auction/concert in the evening.

The concert will be headlined by the Pousette-Dart Band, an American soft rock group that began in the 1970s in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Doors will open at 7pm and the charity event will end around 10pm.

From 7-8pm, there will be an auction in the Parish Hall, including Red Sox tickets, foursomes of golf at the Hopedale & Franklin Country Clubs, and an assortment of seasonal baskets and gift certificates. The concert will begin at 8pm in the Sanctuary of the church. There will also be light snacks and beverages at the cash bar throughout the event. Hopedale Unitarian Parish will cover all costs associated with the event so that 100% of ticket sales will go to Sunflower of Peace, a Massachusetts 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides aid directly to Ukraine. Tickets to the event, including the auction and general admission seating to the concert, are $30 and can be purchased at www.hopedaleunitarian.org.

From 10am-3pm, there will be a Family Fall Festival on the church lawn, with booths from local merchants, craftspeople, and a yard sale section. Proceeds from the booth rentals and Sunflower-Themed Raffle Basket will go toward the Ukraine relief efforts. Outdoor activities will include face painting, a scavenger hunt, and visiting donkeys from Twin Elm Farm. Families will enjoy a picnic lunch with food prepared by church volunteers and participating food trucks, including Shabby Gourmet Smoothies and Sweet Wise Ice Cream. (Rain Date for the daytime outdoor event is Sunday, September 25, from 12pm to 3pm.)

Hopedale Unitarian Parish is located in the center of town at 65 Hopedale St. Please direct any questions to Tracy Anderson, Event Coordinator, at tracylanderson@verizon.net or (508) 962-0235.
