SANATOGA PA – Carla Haydt, executive director of the Boyertown Area Community Wellness Council for the past seven years, has been named as chairperson of a fund-raising gala committee that will help the Sunnybrook Foundation organize and stage the first of what is anticipated to be an annual event to support local non-profits, the Tri-County Community Network announced.
Haydt has more than 17 years of experience in event and meeting planning for both profit and nonprofit organizations. She is a graduate of Lock Haven University, with a degree in communications and public relations.
Planning for the gala was launched by the foundation earlier this year. It is expected to involve a variety of Pottstown area non-profit and charitable organizations, with the event itself to be held at the Sunnybrook Ballroom and Conference Center on Sunnybrook Road.
The network consists of greater Pottstown area public and private organizations, companies, and service providers. It supplies community programs to address the needs of local caregivers’ support, domestic violence awareness, environmental health and safety, the homeless, workforce development, and youth development.
