Center to hold 16th Annual Music in April event April 5

People Plus will hold its 16th annual Music in April gala fundraiser on April 5th, at the Brunswick Recreation Center on Neptune Drive in Brunswick. The annual event combines wonderful dining, live music, silent and live auctions, and much more! Last year’s event raised $50,000 for the seniors and teens of our community. 

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, we serve 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!!
