When we first started thinking about Gala 2020, we felt a responsibility to make a decision that was safe for our community of children and supporters who are at a health risk. We also knew we wanted to gather for this event! Our annual Christmas Gala, occurring since 1990, is one of the most supportive evenings of the year for our programs. We love sharing our little ones and their stories with each of you! Our programs depend on your support, so that our families do not have to make difficult decisions about how to receive the services their children need.
