Thinking of hosting an event?

Why not turn it into a fundraiser to benefit Family Services of Westchester? You could hold a picnic, a BBQ, a cocktail party, you name it. No event is too big or too small, and you can have some fun while doing good.
If you would like to support FSW and need a little inspiration, here are a few ideas:
  • Sales: Garage, Bake, Craft, Car Wash
  • Family Fun: BBQ, Picnic
  • Events: Cocktail Party, Gala, Wine Tasting
  • Celebrations: Donations in lieu of favors or gifts
  • A-Thons: Walk, Bike, Read
  • Outings: Golf, Fishing
  • Corporate: Dress Down Days, pie-throwing contest

Almost anything can be turned into a fun way to raise money that will help FSW make a difference while increasing awareness of the programs and services FSW provides to individuals, families and children throughout Westchester County.
