More than 400 young philanthropists from Greater Boston and the Merrimack Valley are expected to attend the upcoming United Way Emerging Leaders Spring Gala at The Revere Hotel’s Space 57.
The “old Hollywood”-themed celebration for the United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley will include appearances by honorary event chairs New England Patriots defensive back Steve Gregory and his wife Rosanne.
The United Way encourages attendees to dress in the formal-wear fashions of the Golden Age of Hollywood glamour, from the 1920s to the 1950s, to help set the mood.
Volunteers in the United Way’s Emerging Leaders program support its Youth Venture initiative, which provides assistance to entrepreneurs ages 12 – 20 to help them launch small businesses intended to create lasting changes in their communities.
The event will include hors d’oeuvres; beverages, with complimentary wine and beer provided by Narragansett Beer and Berkshire Mountain Distillers; dancing, with music provided by KISS 108 radio personality and gala host Rich DiMare; and a silent auction to support local youth.
The gala will take place at the Revere Hotel, 200 Stuart St., from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, May 18.
Tickets are $100 when sold individually, $90 each for a pair, and $85 each for groups of six or more. They are available at el.supportunitedway.org/gala13. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
