The Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty will be hosting their 19th annual Key Event Sept. 15. The event is the Community Foundation’s largest fundraiser of the year.
This unique event draws more than 550 people and raises more than $150,000. According to the Community Foundation, the money raised at the event allows it to fulfill its mission of facilitating charitable dollars through its grants to nonprofit organizations serving the community.
