POTTSTOWN PA – The 10th annual Basket Party, a highly anticipated fund-raiser for the YWCA Tri-County Area, will be held next Friday (March 20, 2009) beginning at 6 p.m. in the North Coventry Elementary School, 475 Kemp Rd. Its theme this year, “Big Birthday Bash,” marks both the success of earlier basket sales and the YWCA’s Centennial.
During the past decade, local businesses, friends of the Y, and other sponsors all have donated themed baskets filled with fun and usable items on which participants can bid during the party. Since 2000, the event has raised more than $66,000 to benefit a variety of programs at the YWCA, 315 King St., including adult literacy, child care, its parents’ network, and educational and support opportunities.
Event organizers this year expect to offer 100 baskets to mark the Y’s 100 years. Admission at the door costs $20, which includes 10 bidding tickets. For more information, call 610-323-1888.
