FRAMINGHAM, MA - Discover Saxonville's Athenaeum! The Athenaeum is getting a little help from its "Friends".

Join The Friends of Saxonville for community, culture and cuisine -- a reception and concert to benefit the Restoration of The Athenaeum Community Hall at 7:00pm on Saturday evening October 5th, 2013

Although the exterior of Athenaeum has been restored, the interior is in complete disrepair. Our event goal is to raise $10,000 to help with construction costs, provide furnishings and accessories, (i.e. media equipment and kitchen necessities), and provide operating expense support.

Event Highlights include delectable Hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar of fine wine and beer, a brief review of the planned restoration of The Athenaeum Community Hall, a concert of Baroque Period selections for Harpsichord and Flute by The Hunt Trio and the event is topped off with decadent desserts, coffee and tea.

Event Venue is generously donated by Megan Powers in the Dance Studio of Mass Ballet located in the Saxonville Mill, 2 Watson Place (not handicapped accessible). The event is Dressy Casual.

Event Contribution is $40 per person through 9/27 or $50 per person after 9/27.

Reserve a seat soon—space is limited.
