Easton at the Edge of 17

Easton Mountain is turning 17!

Come help us celebrate over Memorial Day Weekend!
Friday, May 26, 2017 – Monday, May 29, 2017

Join us for a weekend celebrating 17 years of community with a gala banquet, top-notch entertainment, informative workshops, fun activities, and more! This annual fundraising event is a great way to have fun, connect with your community, and help Easton raise much needed funds to sustain our facilities and mission-driven programming throughout the year. This year we are drawing inspiration from the song "Edge of Seventeen" by the great Stevie Nicks, and theme-ing the weekend around the fashion, music, art and culture of the 1980's. 

Some things to look forward to: 

Gala Awards Dinner and Auction
Join us as we celebrate 17 years by honoring an Activist, a Philanthropist, and a Volunteer of the Year. Enjoy a sumptuous banquet by Chef Rick and his crew, with entertainment by Jonathan Comisar. Also bid on incredible donated items and services to help us raise funds!

 "Well, I went today, maybe I will go again tomorrow. The music there, it was hauntingly familiar. I see you doing what I try to do for me. With the words from a poet, and a voice from a choir, and a melody, nothing else mattered. Just like the white winged dove sings a song, sounds like she's singing, Ooo, baby, ooo, ooo" - Stevie Nicks - "Edge of Seventeen"
