After-The-Bell plans fundraiser

The Kennett After-School Association has announced that their annual fundraiser, in support of their After-The-Bell program, will be held next month in the heart of Kennett Square and will feature A Taste Of Kennett. The event is scheduled for Friday, March 9 from 7-10 p.m. at Holly Peters Oriental Rugs & Home, 109 South Broad Street.

“As we begin our 20th year, we truly believe that After-The-Bell has become part of the fabric of this wonderful Kennett community,” said KASA President Rudy Karkosak. “More than 5,000 students have benefitted from the commitment of hundreds upon hundreds of volunteers and contributors from this unique and generous community. And so we feel that THE TIME IS NOW to celebrate all that Kennett has to offer. We invite the community to join in this celebration.”

The After-The-Bell Fundraiser, entitled The Time Is Now, will feature food and libations provided by many local establishments, including The Country Butcher, Floga Bistro, Franks Wines, Hearth Kitchen, Kennett Brewing Company, the Kennett Square Inn, Nomadic Pies, and Talula’s Table, with more to be added. Music will be provided by Marlboro Road.

The silent auction to be offered at the event will continue the Taste of … theme with baskets featuring a taste of food and culture from around the world, and baskets that celebrate a taste of the seasons. The auction will also include Super Bowl champion Eagles tickets, timeshares, artwork, and other great items.
