Each year, we strive to have one and only one fundraiser – Gala for the Kids. Through this event, we raise the funds needed to carry out all of our service projects for the coming year. Its success is critical to flawless execution of our service projects.

The more funds we raise, the more children and youth we can serve, and the larger impact we can make in their lives and future.
