OSSINING, N.Y. -- Ossining Matters will host its 2016 benefit event The Big Soirée on Friday, April 1, at 7 p.m. at The Briarcliff Manor. 

The evening will begin with a cocktail reception where guests will have a chance to mingle, explore the rooms and take in the Hudson River views from the mansion. Silent auction items will be on display throughout the venue, and guests will enjoy pop-up musical performances by Ossining students. A buffet dinner and live auction will follow the reception. 

This year’s live auction offerings include fine artwork, vacation destinations, a private dinner party at The Briarcliff Manor and more. The spring benefit is Ossining Matters' biggest fundraising opportunity every year and makes the most impactful contribution toward program grants. 

Since its inception in 2003, Ossining Matters has funded over 190 grants and donated more than $890,000 to the Ossining school district. This calendar year alone, OM provided grants in support of 17 programming initiatives in the Ossining schools, including the Robotics Club, the Science Research Program, Real World Science Exploration Class, the Weather Club, Claremont Coding Club, Brookside Bookworms and the Hudson Tales program. 

The mission of the Ossining Matters Education Foundation is to support and enrich the learning opportunities for all children in the Ossining school district. All funds raised are used to develop and support programming in the areas of academics, cultural arts and athletics to ensure that each student realizes his or her fullest potential. 

The ticket prices for The Big Soirée are $150 per person and $275 per couple. Purchase your tickets online at this website. Festive attire is requested.
