Westwood Community Chest Announces 2023 Gala of Giving (Updated)


Westwood Community Chest (WCC) has announced that the Gala of Giving, the annual fundraising social celebrating WCC’s mission of Neighbors helping Neighbors, will be held on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, at Neroli Ristorante.

The Gala helps bring awareness to the silent needs of residents and provides an opportunity for all Westwood residents to lend a helping hand in support of neighbors. Participants will have the satisfaction of knowing that along with a fun night, supporting the Gala helps to fund WCC financial crisis grants for Westwood residents in need.

After walking the red carpet entrance, guests will be introduced to the taste of new bites from the town’s newest eatery, and food offerings will be paired with fine wine. A wine pull offers the chance for guests to win a bottle of fine wine at a fraction of its cost.

Gala entertainment includes a raffle and silent auction with a variety of experiences - golf outings, weekend getaways, tickets to exclusive events, and more. Add in the opportunity to spend time with friends and meet new neighbors, and it’s a recipe for a night of fun and community.

Tickets sales are anticipated to go live as of Monday, January 23rd on the Westwood Community Chest website by clicking here.

Westwood Community Chest is a 501(c)(3) Public Charity dedicated to helping Westwood residents in need through temporary financial assistance. WCC conducts its activities entirely through the efforts of a volunteer Board, which is supported by one paid administrative staff member, and the cooperation of community partners. WCC works with several town organizations to ensure that community members get the help they need. WCC receives funds from private donors, businesses and town organizations and distributes them to help families in need through a confidential application process for grants.
