Hudson Community Foundation Shines in Big Barn Bash

200 guests attended our annual Big Barn Bash at Case-Barlow Farm on Saturday, Sept. 10.   Funds were raised to benefit Hudson Community Foundation (HCF) and the Hudson NOW Fund, which supports current needs in the community.  These funds will help continue the progress and success of HCF, which has been serving the community for 22 years.

Founded in 2000, Hudson Community Foundation’s mission is to enhance the overall quality of life in the Hudson area by increasing charitable giving, educating and connecting donors to community needs and leading on community issues. The foundation, supported by hundreds of local donors and Donor Advised Funds, operates from an office in the historic Baldwin House on Hudson’s village green and is governed by a volunteer board of directors.

Thank you to our sponsors, committee members and guests that made the event a success!
