Mystic Area Shelter and Hospitality (MASH) Hosts HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE
to Prevent Family Homelessness
Get ready for a different kind of gala! On Friday, May 5, 2017, Mystic Area Shelter and Hospitality (MASH) will host HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE, the ultimate tailgating party in support of Preventing Family Homelessness. Gala highlights include sports-themed games, gourmet tailgating fare, major league silent and live auctions, and dancing in your sneakers to the beat of Power Posse. This year MASH is honoring former Senator Andrew Maynard for his many years advocating for the region’s homeless.
Every day, families in communities throughout Southeastern Connecticut struggle to remain housed. Many are living at or near the Federal Poverty Level, so precariously housed that a relatively minor economic crisis can threaten their housing stability to the point of homelessness. For these families, MASH is often their last hope.
MASH is unique in that they are the only non-profit service provider in the region dedicated exclusively to serving homeless and at-risk families with children. The annual gala is MASH’s most significant fundraiser, with net proceeds supporting critical family services throughout the year. Major sponsors of the event include Melinda Elliott Carlisle, Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun and Mystic Shipyard.
Join us on May 5th and help MASH strike out family homelessness!
