200Join us for our first annual Gala, featuring a full buffet dinner, cash bar, silent auction, raffle, and dancing to the music of Dale LePage, Central Massachusetts' favorite crooner! Jazz saxophonist Willie Sordillo will provide music for cocktail hour and dinner. You will also have the opportunity to meet some of our asylum seekers and hear their stories of courage.

Please support this unique ministry of Hadwen Park Congregational Church, UCC in Worcester. We provide for such needs as housing, food, and spiritual support for 16 asylum seekers at a time, and have helped over 150 people from some of the 80 countries where it is illegal to be gay. It costs nearly $13,000 a MONTH to support this group at a basic subsistence level. The gala is a great way to support this ministry, learn more, and have a fun evening out!

Tables of 8 will be pre-sold at a discounted price of $600. Individual tickets are $85.
