Feb. 14: Wantastiquet Foundation hosts Valentine’s non-event

The Wantastiquet Foundation invites the public to participate in a No Show: Do Not Attend Valentine’s Day Gala of dinner and dancing. A popular fundraising idea sees non-profits inviting donors to non-events. Attendees don’t need to dress up and go out and the non-profits don’t need to pay large sums of money to set up an event, rent a facility, hire caterers and entertainers.

This non-event benefits the Wanatastiquet Londonderry Rotary Scholarship Fund in honor of Dick Foley, which awards area high school college grants.

Suggested contribution is $50. Respond to this no show event by writing a check to the Wanatastiquet Foundation and mail your contribution to:
Wanatastiquet Foundation
P.O. Box 309
Londonderry, VT 05148

For more information, call 802-824-6286.
