Proceeds of Sultana gala support environmental literacy programs for area schools

CHESTERTOWN — The Sultana Education Foundation’s annual gala on Saturday, May 11 promises an evening of style, entertainment and philanthropy supporting the nonprofit’s environmental literacy programs for regional schools.

Sound Society, an elite 11-piece band based in New York City, will perform.

The event also will feature gourmet dining and an open bar, all set against the backdrop of stunning views from Clovelly Farm on the Chester River.

Beyond the glitz and glamour, the heart of the evening lies in its mission to raise funding for SEF’s programs for regional schools.

According to a news release, the Sultana Education Foundation provides environmental literacy field programs for more than 10,000 students annually.

Every dollar raised at the gala directly supports these programs and allows the SEF to offer them on a need-blind basis for public schools.

“We are grateful to the hundred-plus sponsors who make our Annual Gala possible, and particularly to our longtime lead sponsor, Mastercard. Their support makes this great community celebration possible and helps Sultana’s programs drive meaningful change in our own backyard,” SEF President Drew McMullen said in the news release.
