17th Annual Music in April Gala Fundraiser a Record Breaking Success!

People Plus, Brunswick held its 17thannual Music in April gala fundraiser on April 4th, at the Brunswick Recreation Center, 220 Neptune Drive, and it was an outstanding success, raising a new record of over $60,000 for the seniors and teens of our community. The annual event combines wonderful dining, live music, silent and live auctions, and much more! It was a night to be remembered and our appreciation goes out to all of our volunteers, sponsors, restaurants, donors and participants!

Music in April is THE signature fundraiser for People Plus. It enables us to serve the greater Brunswick community by offering a variety of activities to support engaged, healthy and independent lives for older adults, as well as hosting the Teen Center where young people can meet safely to explore creative outlets, eat a healthy meal, and develop into well-rounded adults.  People Plus also provides outreach and transportation services, and offers many volunteer opportunities.   

With over 1000 members,People Plus serves an ever-increasing population of retirees and elders on the Mid Coast and could NOT do it without the income from Music in April – which has become a signature event in our community – a terrific party supporting a worthy cause!!
