Sequoit Pride Sponsors The Main Event

Fundraiser dedicates time, money to providing students with new opportunities in education.

Thousands of dollars are donated every year for students to receive many different opportunities. One major contributor to these donations is Sequoit Pride. Last October, Sequoit Pride managed to donate $35,000 to the high school and plans to top that with their Main Event fundraiser this year.

The Main Event is an annual fundraiser for anyone over 21 that features live entertainment, dinner, drinks and auctions; all of which is planned by parent volunteers from Sequoit Pride.

“The primary goal of the fundraiser is to raise as much money as possible,” Sequoit Pride President Jim Connelly said in an email. “It’s a fun evening and is a way for the community to help raise money to pay for student opportunities that would otherwise go unfunded.”

This year the auction will contain many diverse items such as gift certificates, spa packages and even drum lessons that will go to guests that attend. Guests will also get to see a performance by the ACHS Jazz Band as well as enjoy the atmosphere and other people.

The registration deadline for the Main Event is Friday, Feb. 26. After that, ticket prices go up to $20 for auction-only and $40 for dinner and auction. Interested guests can register here.
