Along with an Italian buffet dinner, the fundraiser will include a silent auction, raffles, and activity tables for children.
Local musicians Scott and Cara Hooper will provide entertainment.
People attending are asked to make a tax deductible donation of $20 per individual or $40 per family. Tickets are available by calling Jean M. Lanahan at 508-335-4812.
Donations can also be mailed to Hoxie Center, PO Box 468, Sagamore Beach, MA, 02562.
In February, after nearly three-and-a-half years of negotiations and planning, selectmen voted unanimously to turn over control of the former Ella F. Hoxie Elementary School to the group that is looking to turn the old, vacant building into an educational and cultural center.
The Hoxie Center at Sagamore Beach for Art, Science, Education and Culture, Inc., is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
