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. Our goal this year is to top $35,000; all of which goes back into services and supports for the individuals at Gateway Services.”
Those who miss the call can expect to receive a letter in the mail. If you are not on the mailing list for Gateway and are interested in donating, call 815-875-4548.
