On October 21, 2017, the Amherst Appeal will be hosting its 5th annual Show Us Your Stripes community party and fundraiser at a new location, The Fairdale Banquet Center. Through generous donations of businesses and individuals, Show Us Your Stripes promises to be a premier event as well as a fundraiser that directly benefits Amherst Central’s students, teachers, academic programs, arts offering, athletic experiences, and buildings and learning spaces for the Amherst Appeal. Sustainability and enhancement is critical as we recognize limitations on revenue and the dire need which exists to seek sources of alternative funding.
