🌟 Capital Region Gives Back Event ticket sales to benefit FCC, Wednesday December 6

Join us on December 6 for a feel-good, festive evening of food, drinks and music, from 6-9pm at Putnam Place in Saratoga and to see which honoree raised the most for his or her charity or nonprofit! We are excited to announce that our very own, Mary Beth McGarrahan, was chosen this year as one of the honorees. Please come out and support Mary Beth and FCC by attending the event!

When you purchase your event ticket, 50 percent of each ticket sold goes to the nonprofit listed (we hope you choose FCC!). Whichever honoree raises the most for his/her nonprofit will be the “winner” at the event—and will have the funds raised via these ticket sales matched by Saratoga Living and Capital Region Living magazines.
