Night Train to Calcutta a fundraising success

SPEEDING FORWARD: Calcutta House’s April 24 “Night Train to Calcutta” fundraising event brought together about 170 supporters of the HIV/AIDS housing organization, including event co-chairs Jody Marcell (from left), Elizabeth Nourian and Jill Demmy (far right) and Calcutta director of development and communications Heather Osborne. The fundraiser, held at the Merion Tribute House in Merion Station, raised about $60,000 for Calcutta House. During the event, Calcutta officials announced the organization’s new fundraising initiative — a gift club that encourages donors to contribute certain monetary amounts on an annual basis — which brought in an additional $35,000.
