The Women’s League of Reading hosted their annual Gala and Silent Auction on Saturday March 7th at the Crowne Plaza in Woburn. This event has been a tradition in Reading for over 50 years and is the Women’s League’s largest fundraiser of the season. 2020 marks the 70th year that members of the Women’s League have gathered to coordinate fundraising, social and community events within Reading. The funds raised by the Women’s League are disbursed annually among community groups, foundations, organizations and families in need. The League has donated over $50,000 back to the Reading Community in the last two years alone.
With the help of their corporate sponsors and generous donations from businesses in the community the tradition of giving back continued on Saturday night when the Women’s League raised $18,000 for their annual fund. Gala guests dined, danced to a live band, Reading’s own Generation Knot, and bid on amazing auction items. Some of the most popular auction bundles included tickets to Boston sporting events, jewelry from Simms Jewelers, Principal for a day experiences at all local elementary schools, ski passes to Wachusett and Cranmore Mountains, an American Girl Doll, a baseball signed by Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale, a football signed by Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy, and handcrafted originals from several of Reading’s talented citizens.
