A special evening is on tap for Gilbert Plains Saturday night, as the Community Fund in that town hosts a fundraising gala. 

This year's event begins at 8 pm at the Richardson Pioneer Community Hall. 

Charlene Gulak, chair of the Gilbert Plains Community Fund committee, says one of the Highlights of the night will be ttheir annual grants presentations.

"We have over $21,000 that we will be granting out to over a dozen valuable community projects and initiatives that are underway or are in the process of being developed within the community."

Gulak adds this year's major fundraiser for the organization has a special theme to it. 

"It is based on a 1950's and 60's era of celebration.  And we want to encourage everyone to dress up in costumes or special clothing that they may have that was typical to those years."

There will also be silent and rainbow auctions, along with a late-night pulled pork lunch.

Tickets for the gala are $35 each and are available at Gilbert Plains Fusion Credit Union, Paziuk's Family Foods, or by contacting the Gilbert Plains Community Fund on Facebook.
