Gateway Services in Princeton will host its annual Phone-A-Thon event from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, June 5. During the event, callers will reach out to friends of Gateway who have donated in past years.

“Phone-A-Thon is our longest running and most successful fundraiser that was started in the mid-80s,” said CEO Tracy Wright. “We truly appreciate everyone who continues to support us each year.
