Westwood Community Chest (WCC) has announced details of its 2024 Gala of Giving, an event to be held on Monday, March 25th at Neroli Ristorante in Westwood, which offers neighbors an opportunity to connect in an evening of dining and entertainment while raising funds for a good cause.

Proceeds from ticket sales and the evening entertainment – a raffle, wine pull, and a silent auction that will be held in-person and online - will fund WCC grants to assist Westwood residents in need of temporary financial assistance.

“We have auction items that will be next level!” says event organizer Theresa Laham. She says the silent auction will offer “golf outings to top-notch, notable courses,” fitness packages, unique outdoor experiences, and an exclusive dining experience at Neroli, the host restaurant. She also hints at another offering, saying, “To a lot of folks, just saying the words, ‘dumplings’ will get your bidding paddle up!”

In addition to the silent auction, Gala supporters can also purchase a $10 raffle ticket for a chance to win items worth $300 to $3,000. Raffle items include: (1) an outdoor patio space heater; (2) Bose EarPhones; (3) outdoor movie experience (package that bundles a movie projector, Bluetooth Bose speaker, and 20-foot inflatable movie screen).

Westwood Community Chest is a volunteer-run, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is dedicated to supporting Westwood residents of all ages and incomes who need temporary financial assistance. Through a confidential application and award process, WCC’s grants are directed to utility bills, school supplies, medical equipment/treatment, transportation, summer camp enrollment, and other areas where monetary assistance is needed.

Community members are invited to join WCC’s effort of “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” by purchasing WCC’s 2024 Gala of Giving event tickets and raffle tickets, online, at https://westwoodcommunitychest.org.
The Gala is open not just to Westwood residents but to all WCC supporters and to members of the community.
