The Gala

Join Us for Our Signature Event 

The Gala started in 2011 as the primary fundraiser to help us carry out our mission. We wanted to create an event that was unique and memorable.

What started as a small, 50-person event has grown to our maximum capacity of 350-400 people each year. We offer an unforgettable experience with live music, unlimited hors d’oeuvres, a dessert auction, and a live auction. The best part is that we bring together a room full of people who are committed to ending violence.

About the Gala

The event takes place every March on a Friday night. We start with a 2-hour social time, so guests can enjoy the wide variety of hors d’oeuvres with the guests at their tables. Live music helps set the tone. We move on to a dessert auction to satisfy the sweet tooth. While guests are enjoying their desserts, guest speaker(s) will share more about the work we’re doing to help others. After this, we move on to the live auction, where we have so many wonderful options to bid on. It’s a great night in support of a great cause. Consider joining us at the event people just can’t get enough of.  

If you’re wondering what you should wear to a Gala, you should know that anything goes! You can dress as formal or as informal as you’d like. We’ve seen it all!

VIP Tables and Sponsorships 

There are many opportunities to be part of The Gala. People can attend the event by purchasing a VIP table, which offers reserved seating for 8 with your name or business logo. The event often sells out, so sometimes this is your only ticket into the fun. If the event doesn’t sell out, individual tickets could be available for purchase.  

We offer sponsorship opportunities that provide great publicity for your business. Benefits of sponsoring include recognition on the auction website, bid catalogs, and digital media at the event venue. There are different levels of sponsorship, so there’s something available to fit every budget.
