2017 Mayor’s Charity Ball to Benefit Four Valleys Community School

Our name was literally pulled out of a hat! Each year the Anchorage Mayor’s Charity Ball pulls the names of four non-profits to be beneficiaries of their annual fundraiser. This year, along with the Girdwood Health Clinic, Anchorage Opera, and Lutheran Social Services, Four Valleys Community School will benefit from the gala held October 14, 2017 in Anchorage.

We are obtaining silent auction items to help us at the event. If you believe in community education and have a service, item, or funds to donate to help us on October 14th we would be deeply appreciative.

Our deadline (9/18 ) is rapidly approaching to collect our items. Please be in touch by e-mailing Catherine McDermott at
