MAY 1, 2020

Our annual gala has been re-imagined, with delicious food, high-energy entertainment, and lots of activity throughout the night; creative black and white cocktail attire is encouraged. This event raises over $100,000 to support our clients.


We are taking this new normal a day at a time and working behind the scenes to make sure our 5/1 event happens – either in person (fingers crossed!) or in another exciting way. We need your support now more than ever to continue serving our clients, so please consider purchasing a ticket to the event and stay tuned for news as we continually evolve. It is our hope that we can bring some love and light to you in this confusing time and give everyone something to celebrate. Thank you for your support!
