Each March, after long winters have confined everybody to their homes, the Achieve Foundation launches a huge community get-together. It’s a simple concept: Volunteer hosts throw parties and invite their friends and neighbors. Instead of bringing a beverage or dessert, guests make a contribution to Achieve.

Over 1,000 dine in dozens of homes in all neighborhoods each year, demonstrating the camaraderie and generosity of spirit of our two towns — all to benefit Achieve’s programs. Party-goers are entertained at murder-mystery evenings, birthday bashes, casino events, retro parties, ladies’ nights and other themed parties.

Since its inception in 2005, this Night of 100 Dinners series of fundraisers has brought in more than $500,000 to fund Achieve’s programs and benefit all the schools in the district. This year we’re extending our Night of a Hundred Dinners to a month-long event of dinners and much more! To volunteer or learn more, please contact

New for 2019: Achieve is inviting anyone and everyone in the community to help us kick off our annual fundraiser and celebrate as a community. Join us for a Mardi Gras soiree hosted by the Achieve Foundation and generously underwritten by Edrington.
