In the 11th anniversary of the gala, we are excited to hold this year’s event at The Beverly Hilton on April 20, 2023 at 6 PM. The gala is not only our biggest fundraising event of the year, it is also an opportunity to honor community partners who have showed up for and supported children and families impacted by the largest child welfare system in our country.

A major highlight of our gala is the auction. Be a part of our unique auction by donating an item. We are looking for hospitality packages such as hotel stays and airfare, as well as gift cards to restaurants, services like massage, yoga or fitness and luxury items.
