They also want to make a difference in the community. They decided to do both.

On June 13 and 14, Frank and Kathleen Stucky will host an open house in their new home at 721 Bobtail Court in Newton. The event will benefit the Greater Newton Community Foundation.

As a board member of the organization, Kathleen Stucky said she believes strongly the mission of Greater Newton Community Foundation is important to Newton and surrounding communities.

The foundation seeks to strengthen the charitable services available in the community by encouraging philanthropy.

“GNCF is a wonderful asset to our community. Many area charities and the people they aid benefit from the foundation’s services. Frank and I wanted to help GNCF continue to do this important work in our community,” she said.

“The ‘Fore’ Party” is a come-and go-event from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. each evening. Local artists will display their work throughout various rooms of Stucky’s home. The celebration also will feature live music, wine and hors d’oerves.

Tickets are $50 per person with all proceeds benefiting the foundation. The event is limited to 100 guests per night. Tickets may be purchased by contacting the foundation office at 283-5474 or contacting any of the foundation board members, including Mike Barron, Barb Burns, Delores Dalke, Megan Evans, Bill Hake, Marnette Hatchett, Jay Holstine, Dick McCall, Roland Miller, John Morton, Justina Neufeld, Joe Robb, Melvin Schadler, Kathleen Stucky or John Suderman.

“We are very excited to be hosting this unique and fun event, and are pleased to be able to benefit the Greater Newton Community Foundation at the same time,” Kathleen Stucky said.
