JAMESTOWN, N.Y. – Hold onto your perms and grab your leg warmers. Community Helping Hands is excited to host an 80’s Rewind Party and Cash Raffle at Chautauqua Suites in Mayville on Saturday, March 3rd from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Preparations are well underway for this first annual signature fundraising event benefiting Community Helping Hands in Jamestown; a not-for-profit organization providing emergency assistance to local families in need, and a youth/family center offering a variety of activities since 2001. Proceeds will help Community Helping Hands provide a hand up to our community when they need it the most.
The event boasts DJ dance music provided by Star Sirch Productions, $500 and $250 cash jackpots, 80’s costume contest cash prizes with $500 for best group of at least three people and $250 for best overall individual, no cost photo booth, basket raffle, VIP lounge area and a complimentary buffet dinner. There may even be a surprise performance celebrating the totally radical 80’s. All money raised will help Community Helping Hands to continue providing low cost clothing, furniture and household goods to those in need. Community Helping Hands also provides job skills training and work experience opportunities as a way of empowering individuals to help themselves and others while creating a sense of community and teamwork.
“We are beyond excited to offer a unique and fun night out for everyone attending this 80’s throwback party,” said Community Helping hands Board Chairperson Elizabeth Cipolla. “The people of Chautauqua County have big hearts and love to have a great time. Based upon our early ticket sales, it looks like this event will really showcase Chautauqua County at its finest – people coming together for a great cause, which will directly impact the lives of hundreds who would otherwise have nowhere to turn throughout the coming year.“
