News From The Matthews

It’s Official. The UN-FUNdraiser was a Blast!


Last Saturday, October 19, The Matthews put on a different kind of Fall fundraiser.  It was decided that instead of begging for money, we would instead celebrate our Friends.  In September, a new campaign began to promote becoming a Friend of The Matthews…and it started at $50!  Every sponsor, advertiser, and person who became our Friend was sent a formal invitation to our UN-FUNdraiser Friends Gala.

Once our Friends arrived, they were able to enjoy appetizers, cash bar, music, magic — the Amazing Nosmo, and parlor games. Two of the evening’s most popular guests were Mattie Opera and her boyfriend, Art Gallery.  They made sure all of our Friends were made to feel welcome and encouraged them to participate on the dance floor and the games.
