2017 An Evening in Red & Blue Gala

The new Fitchburg fire station served as a lovely backdrop for our second annual An Evening in Red & Blue Gala on September 23, presented by sponsor MassMutual and supporting sponsors Supreme Structures and AAA. A couple hundred people filled the fire station and feasted on amazing food and drinks, and bid on many wonderful auction items. It was amazing to see so many people come together to support REACH-A-Child.
