MFS 65th Anniversary - 1950-2015

On October 1, 2015, A Gathering of Good, the signature fundraising event for Metropolitan Family Service, brought together nearly 300 guests to celebrate 65 years of service in our community.

The event, with a theme of creating lasting change, broke all fundraising records raising over $300,000 to support MFS programs that benefit more than 30,000 children, families, and older adults each year.


MFS 65th Anniversary Celebration


Event highlights included dance and spoken word presentations from MFS Community Schools students, as well as a musical performance by the Unistus Chamber Choir. MFS Chief Executive Officer, Judy Strand, shared her message that with your support we can get there in time for those who need our help today.

MFS sincerely thanks all of the event sponsors, donors and attendees for helping us get there in time for those who need us most!

Next year’s event is already in the works. We’ll update this page with details on the 8th annual A Gathering of Good as it gets closer to fall 2016.

Thank you!
