The College Park Community Foundation Winter Gala will include the presentation of College Park Community Foundation 2013 Grants, silent auction with gifts charitably contributed from around College Park and prize raffle.

The recipients of three grants include: The University of Maryland’s Office of Community Engagement, the College Park Arts Exchange and College Park Woods Neighborhood Watch.

The grant to the Office of Community Engagement will help fund their ongoing partnership with Paint Branch Elementary School, in particular preparing students to perform well on required standardized tests.

The grant to the College Park Arts Exchange will support their new Adult Choir. The Choir will explore a variety of songs, from popular music to classical, with offerings from The Beatles and Queen to Vivaldi and Mozart.

Finally, the College Park Woods Neighborhood Watch, for updating and distributing a neighborhood guide to residents.

Congratulations to all three groups!
