Come celebrate our organization’s 35 years of service at this year’s Citizens Inn Gala on Oct. 26 at 6 p.m. at Danversport. Ticket cost is $100 per person, and tickets can be purchased at citizensinn.eventbrite.com or by calling 978-531-9775. Food, dancing and auction items will keep guests entertained all night. The gala will feature live and silent auctions, dinner and entertainment from Shuffle Mode Band. The masquerade-themed event is the organization’s largest fundraiser of the year.

Channel 5’s “Eye Opener” news anchor Randy Price will return for his 10th year as the event’s master of ceremonies alongside Citizens Inn’s Executive Director Corey Jackson as auctioneer.

“Citizens Inn has been able to help so many people over the years because of this special event,” said Laura McKellar, co-chairman of the auction. “Not only is it a great party for all, but it’s a wonderful opportunity for attendees to learn more about the people whose lives they’re changing through their support.”

Auction items include amazing dining experiences, vacations and art and jewelry from some of the most well-known artists on the North Shore. For all of you sports fans, there will a pair of tickets to a Celtics, Bruins, Red Sox and Patriots home game, along with several sports memorabilia items, including an autographed Tom Brady jersey and Patriots helmet signed by Rob Gronkowski.

Leading event sponsors include North Shore Bank, New England BioLabs, TJX, Prova, Sandra Derrico, MRG Construction and Solimine Development Corporation.
