Annual Benefit

Thank you to everyone who made our 2019 Benefit Gala such a success!

On March 9, over 270 guests--the second-largest crowd ever--gathered for SVT's "Birds of a Feather" Annual Benefit Gala at the Sheraton Hotel in Framingham. Everyone had a great time while raising much-needed funds for our conservation efforts. 

Thank you to the volunteers who helped plan this fantastic evening, to Nele Kaps for her invitation designs, and to Village Bank for its business sponsorshp. Special thanks to those who donated auction items and to our guests who generously bid on them.

In Fall 2019, we'll be announcing plans for our 2020 Annual Benefit Gala. Hope to see you there!
