The 2018 Knight to Shine will be held on Saturday March 17, 2018! Please direct all event-related inquiries to Hollie Williams.
In 1988, North Andover Youth Services was established through a state grant of $15,000 that was matched by funds from North Andover residents and businesses. NAYRS began as a one-year pilot program whose purpose was as an information and referral center for high-risk teens in town. Now, almost 30 years later, North Andover Youth & Recreation Services is a vital part of the town. The program serves over 3,000 youth every year.
Each year we hold a large fundraising event to support our goals. Please join us on Saturday, March 17th at DiBurro's as with celebrate the 10th Annual "Knight to Shine" event.
$100 per person includes complimentary cocktail hour (open bar), hors d'ouvres and a full sit down dinner. The event includes a great live auction, silent auction, raffles, music and much, much more. All proceeds benefit our North Andover Youth Center.
You may reserve a table for 10 to guarantee specific people at your table but we will try to accommodate requests for individual ticket purchases. However, a reserved table is the only way we will guarantee seating placement.
We use PayPal as our secure payment processor and any information you provide is secure and private. Information on purchasing tickets will be available soon. If you would prefer to purchase your tickets with a personal check please contact Hollie Williams.
For more information or to donate an item for an auction please contact Hollie Williams at 617-759-5033 or by email.
At our Knight to Shine event, we present college scholarships to a number of high school seniors. These scholarships are paid for through money raised by our Joseph N. Hermann Youth Center, Inc. at our annual auction. At our 2017 Knight to Shine, we presented scholarships to Alexis Cacace, Grace Ford, Molly Dalton, and Emma Callamaro. Additionally, we presented Bill Moeckel Memorial Scholarships to Jack Fowler and Grace Liporto, in memory of Bill Moeckel, a member of the North Andover High School 1985 graduating class, who passed away unexpectedly in October of 2015.
Each year at our Knight to Shine event, we have the chance to honor our Youth of the Year, chosen for their volunteerism to the North Andover Youth Center. Check out more information about our Youth of the Year here!
