A Better Chance New Canaan will mark its 41st anniversary with an Oct. 4 fundraiser at the Country Club of New Canaan.

The event, starting at 6:30 p.m., will feature a raffle of a Favaro diamond ring donated by Harry French of Henry C. Reid & Sons.

The ABC House of New Canaan provides local housing, academic, financial and social support for eight scholarship students brought to town. Graduates of ABC have gone on to attend major universities, as well as take advantage of opportunities that the program provides them.

The anniversary program will include student speakers, a silent and live auction, as well as dinner and music.

For tickets, $200, contact Candace Curran at 203-972-1363 or candacecurran50@gmail.com.
