This year, the Somerset Foundation party, which raises money that forms the base of the grants that the Foundation supports — as well as is raising funds to help families in need during the Covid-19 crisis, is being held as a “Stay at Home Soiree.” Please support our efforts here: https://cbo.io/tickets/somersetfdn/2020
There is a very real need within the SES community, and the support of the Foundation is important now more than ever. We have given $9,000 in the last three weeks to our Somerset families in need of food and supplies. This is an ever-expanding list as families lose their jobs and other revenue streams. We will keep doing everything we can to support the online learning and provide materials such as books and gift cards for food and other necessary home products.
In order to do so, though, we must continue to raise funds and rely upon the your generosity. We normally host a Spring Party, but hosting a large community event in May 2020 is unrealistic. As such we are still going to host a “Virtual Stay at Home Soiree” on Saturday, May 16th, and we hope you will “attend”.
For every ticket that you purchase, you will receive a child size Somerset Spirit wear t-shirt, access to the online auction, and the price of the ticket is now fully tax deductible.
Special thanks for our generous sponsors:
