Community Based Fundraisers

The Gathering Place is regularly approached by people in the community who would like to raise money to support our mission.  In addition to the money we receive, each of these events also introduces new people to The Gathering Place. We are very appreciative of all the individuals and organizations who help to make these events possible.  We invite you to view the Celebrating Our Caring Community post recognizing those who supported our free programs and services last quarter. If you would like to host/organize a fund raising event contact Kristine Pagsuyoin or call  (216) 595-9546. Below is a list of upcoming and ongoing community based fundraisers:
