21st Annual Music in April Fundraiser - Tickets On Sale Now! - Call the Center for Tickets!

Mark your calendars for the 21st annual People Plus Music in April online auction and live auction gala! This year’s fundraiser will include the popular month-long online auction from April 1-28 (with new items added every week), and a gala event and live auction planned for Friday, April 28 from 5-8 pm at the St. John’s Community Center in Brunswick. Last year’s event was a great success, raising over $50,000 for the Center!

Get your tickets early for the Gala event (our first in-person event in 3 years!). Tickets are $50 each or 2 for $90 and include a seat at the gala where you can enjoy fantastic local music, delicious food, raffle and live auction. Tickets are available at the Center - call 729-0757!

Last year’s online auction featured a variety of items donated to the Center including local gift certificates, jewelry, a snow board, private dinners, an outdoor gas grill, variety baskets, clothing, paintings, vintage treasures, hand-made items and much more - there was something for everyone - in every price range! New items were added every Thursday afternoon which made a fun month of “shopping.”

Music in April is THE signature fundraiser for People Plus. It enables us to serve over ___ People Plus members who represent an ever-increasing population of retirees and elders on the Mid Coast. This non-profit could NOT do it without the income from Music in April – which has become a signature event in our community. The Center has raised over $600,000 from the event over the last 20 years. These last two years have demonstrated exactly how vital People Plus is to the lives of the older adult populations. In addition to hundreds of classes, clubs and meals held safely at the Center, we made over two thousand deliveries of groceries, food pantry boxes, meals and prescriptions – and provided over 32,000 miles of transportation – just last year, keeping seniors safe!

People Plus serves 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.
