Mission & History

Frederick Goes…70s Gala

This year’s event will be 70s-themed in honor of our 40th anniversary (we were founded in 1979!). We’re inviting guests to dress in their best 70s style and enjoy an evening of dancing, music, great food, and fun activities like a caricature artist and a 70s-inspired candy buffet!

Tickets are on sale now!
