The 15th Annual MetroWest ESL Fund Gala was held May 18 at the Sheraton Hotel in Framingham. WCVB-TV’s Doug Meehan was the emcee for the event that supports the MetroWest ESL program.
Established in 1999, the organization has raised more than $750,000 to fund six classes at Framingham Adult ESL Plus.
Since 1984, Framingham Adult English as a Second Language Plus (ESL) has helped hundreds of local immigrants reach
their goal of learning to speak the English language. In addition to the free English classes that ESL offers mornings and evenings, they also hold citizenship and GED preparation classes. Framingham Adult ESL Plus currently has more than 600 students enrolled, but also has a wait list of more than 500 students.
