An Evening with The Shelby Foundation: For a Brighter Tomorrow is a fun, casual fundraising event on Saturday, September 21st to benefit the local community. Proceeds from the event will be invested back into the community through grants overseen by the Foundation. Last year alone, The Shelby Foundation awarded over $300,000 to worthy area nonprofit organizations in need.

Channeling Ralph Phillips’ charitable spirit, one of the greatest philanthropists in Shelby’s history, the event will be held at the Ralph Phillip’s Conference Center at the Kehoe Center. The evening will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will feature delicious food, silent and live auctions, music, and dancing.

Tickets to the event, which include hors d’oeuvres and dinner, are $25 each. To purchase tickets or questions about the event or The Shelby Foundation, contact Carrie Kemerer, director, at (419) 342-3686 or visit:
