The One Hen Organization, dedicated to empowering all kids to become social entrepreneurs who make a difference for themselves and the world, will be hosting It Takes a Village on Friday, April 29th at the Wellesley Country Club.

One Hen’s primary fundraiser, this year’s It Takes a Village will feature live entertainment, a village marketplace offering fair trade items, a raffle, the opportunity to meet One Hen program graduates and award-winning local author Katie Smith Milway, upon which One Hen’s programs are built, and relaxed time to visit with friends—old and new.  Raffle items include a four-night trip complete with airfare and hotel accommodations in the Dominican Republic, Red Sox tickets, a weekend at the Huntington House in Stockbridge, VT, and a $150 gift certificate to DePrisco Jewelers. A generous donation from a local family foundation will match all funds raised.
