WATERVILLE VALLEY, NH– The most anticipated event of the winter, the Margret and H.A. Rey Center’s fundraising gala is on Saturday February 13, 2016 at 6:00 pm. This year’s event is bigger than ever and will again be held at the Waterville Valley Conference Center to accommodate dinner and dancing to the sounds of New Hampshire’s own “The Shifters.” Also included in the evening’s festivities are a cocktail hour, a sit down dinner, a live auction and a silent auction, all to benefit the art, science, and nature education programs at the Margret and H.A.
