EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – The EVSC Foundation is hosting the fourth annual Hangers benefit gala on Saturday, February 29.

The event will take place at Cambridge Golf Course and will include dinner, a program, and silent and live auctions.

Single tickets are $75 with a table of eight costing $600.

All proceeds provide clothing and hygiene kits for students facing barriers.

Foundation executive director. “From house fires, to homelessness, to housing or foster care transitions, we are able to act immediately to reduce strain on the family unit and help students stay focused on their education. $150 sponsors a child for an entire year. Community supporters who sponsor children enable us to step in quickly to help limit a student’s time spent out of the classroom.”

The goal of the gala is to raise $30,000.

You can also support Hangers by donating an auction item, making a financial contribution, or dropping off new and gently-used clothing at the Hangers facility located at the Academy for Innovative Studies/former North High School.

To purchase tickets, call 812-435-0934 or email info@evscfoundation.org.
