Donate to the Friends Association “Fund for Friends” campaign through Saturday, Dec. 3, and see your donation doubled.

An anonymous donor has agreed to match all donations that are made until a $25,000 goal is reached during the “Fund for Friends” Campaign.

The Fund for Friends Matching Gift Challenge will help raise essential funds to support families experiencing or at risk of homelessness in our community.

The “Fund for Friends” campaign began Saturday, Nov. 26, and runs to Saturday, Dec. 3.

Help the Friends Association raise $25,000 for families in the community. Santa will deliver the check at the Dec. 3 Charity Ball if the $25,000 campaign goal is reached.

The 34th Annual West Chester Charity Ball, presented by A. Marinelli & Sons, celebrates the Friends Association 200th anniversary. It takes place Saturday, Dec. 3, 6 to 10 p.m., at the West Chester Golf & Country Club, 111 W. Ashbridge Street in West Chester.

The in-person event includes a sit-down dinner, open bar, live music, and dancing, silent and live auctions.

All proceeds of the Dec. 3 event benefit Friends Association in its work to end homelessness in Chester County for families with children.
