Valley Gives Day Success!

Stacked-image-150-x150Thank you for giving so generously and helping raise over $1.6 million for 407 non-profits in the Pioneer Valley.

The PGO thanks the many community members who supported us on Valley Gives Day 2017! Your generosity boosted our Presenters’ Fund and will enable us to bring ARHS alum Miguel Paredes’ theatre group to the school for Dialogue Day. The balance of the money raised will be used to fund additional presenters next year (stay tuned for details). Thanks again for helping to enhance our students’ experience at ARHS!

The Amherst Hurricane Boosters was honored to participate in Valley Gives Day for the first time; with 90 donations, we came in 8th out of 150+ small non-profits and raised almost $5,000, including $750 in prize money.

The money will help subsidize the purchase of new field equipment for our athletic programs, including soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey goals, football field markers, and safety padding for the goal posts. The individual teams will also fundraise to help purchase the equipment.

Thank you for helping keep our athletic programs star quality.
