The organization called Motivational Volunteers Promoting the Spirit Of Sports (& Activities) was created "to ensure a solid foundation for the future educational and personal success of our youth by keeping them involved in athletics and educational activities through the support of athletics and programs in our schools and our community," according to its website.
Since 2004, MVPSOS has raised more than $170,000 and awarded more than $100,000 to New Milford residents in need.
Festivities on Oct. 30 will begin at 6:30 p.m. Dinner will be served at 8 p.m. A live auction will follow dinner.
Tickets at $75 may be purchased by calling the offices of Dumas, Bakewell and Mulhare at 860-355-2223.
