Bukari at Gala

Join Groundwork Somerville and friends at the annual Groundwork Somerville Gala on April 4th at 7pm. The Gala will be held at Anthony’s, on the corner of Highland and Central.

Join us for this special once-a-year night when we clean off the dirt, get dressed up, and celebrate the amazing accomplishments of the past year, while raising money for the big year ahead and toasting to our amazing volunteers and interns who have put so much effort in over the past 12 months. They’ve planted seeds, boiled syrup and built beds, and are ready to do it again this year! We’ll be celebrating all night with live music and prizes!

Tickets on sale now! Don’t miss out!
