Third Annual Valentine Gala

Last year’s PEF Valentine Gala was Plymouth’s premier fundraising event of 2013!

The Plymouth Education Foundation held its Third Annual Valentine Gala on Saturday, February 9th at Waverly Oaks Golf Club. This is black tie-optional event included dinner, dancing, live music featuring Smoking Jackets, and silent & live auction. Once again, the event SOLD OUT!

All proceeds from the event went to the Plymouth Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2008. The PEF is the premier, non-profit organization established to support and enhance the education of the students and citizens of the Town of Plymouth.

During the event, the PEF presented the family of Alba Thompson with the Adele Manfredi Excellence in Education Award, in recognition of Mrs. Thompson’s selfless, lifelong commitment & dedication to education and community. Adele worked as a school teacher in Quincy, Weymouth, and Plymouth. She served on the Plymouth School Committee for over 15 years, 13 as chair, never missing a meeting. She was also a member of the Plymouth Planning Board, Assistant Town Moderator, and Town Meeting Member. Adele was a founding member of the Plymouth Education Foundation. This award was created in her memory to honor those in Plymouth who exemplify extraordinary commitment to education and community.

In addition, the Foundation is gratefully accepting auction items of any value. To donate an item, contact Gala Chair, Nicole Manfredi.
