2022 Annual Benefit

Welcome to Hudson Guild's 2022 Annual Benefit! Thanks for joining us to celebrate our important work of fighting poverty and creating a strong community in Chelsea and beyond. We are proud to be honoring Tony Gilroy and Susan Egbert Gilroy for their longtime support of Hudson Guild.



$10,000 Makes a FULL YEAR OF HEAD START possible for one child. Colors, numbers, speech - the essentials for learning and development - begin in pre-K. Hudson Guild is required to privately pay 2 of every 5 Head Start students. Your gift provides direct access to early learning for one child - and is key to unlocking $40,000 for other children!

$5,000 Covers the cost of 5 SUMMER CAMPERS - for the whole summer! Weekly trips to parks and pools and museums, fun summer learning so kids are ready to start school again - and peace of mind for parents and caregivers! 8 weeks long, 8 - 6 every day.

$2,500 Keeps the HUDSON GUILD THEATER OPEN AND ACCESSIBLE to the Guild community. To cover Arts costs, the Guild often has to rent out its theater - closing it off to programs. $2,500 keeps the theater open for a full week - for films, workshops, community performances - deepening the impact of the Guild arts education and participation activities!

$1,000 Offers 10 TEEN PROGRAM participant activities: college prep, internships, podcasting, cooking, sports and music. Critical programs to help young people advance in education, careers and the path to adulthood.

$500 Provides 200 HOMEMADE MEALS to seniors in our Older Adult Center - part of the 42,000 meals the Guild prepares for seniors each year as a way to promote nutrition, engagement and social connection.

$100 Covers the cost of a COUNSELING session for anyone in the community who needs it: kids, adults, and families. Government reimbursements only cover a fraction of the cost, and your support ensures that therapy, and problem-solving is available right here in the neighborhood.
