What to Expect

We are thrilled to invite you to our 10th Annual CHRISTmas “Be a Blessing” Gala! This event marks the 10th consecutive year we’ve stood to bring awareness to and demonstrate love toward foster care and homeless children, youth and teens through the collection of new and unwrapped Christmas gifts for the foster and homeless youth we serve. We love this opportunity to give back to our partner organizations, community of volunteers, and our supporters with a phenomenal dinner, waist destroying desserts, raffle prizes that’ll make you scream out loud (like a crazy person), and a night of soul stirring musical performances and inspiration.

Come dressed in your holiday best, bring your family and friends, and enjoy a heartwarming, entertaining evening along with some special surprises you won’t want to miss.

For a sneak peak of what to expect, check out our video from last year’s Gala!

Partner Organizations


Door of Hope – http://www.doorofhope.us/christmas.html
To help make the season brighter for a displaced child, please visit their site to view their wish list for gift ideas.



Inner Circle Foster Care and Adoption Services – http://fosterfamily.org


Pennylane Center – http://pennylane.org


Union Rescue Mission (URM) – http://urm.org
URM hosts a Christmas Store for their guests. They call it a store because they give their guests the opportunity to “shop” at no cost to them. This makes for a special Christmas giveaway because they don’t just distribute toys. Instead, guests get to select exactly what they know their children need and will truly enjoy. The Christmas Store allows guests the opportunity to shop with pride and dignity, empowering them with the ability to give gifts to their children on Christmas morning.
