Gala 2020

Thank you!

From St. Joseph Institute and the Board of Directors, a sincere thank you for helping us exceed our goals at our first-ever virtual gala. Your generosity helps children continue to receive vital services in the upcoming year.

Held on SJI’s Founders Day, this year’s gala honored past and present. Whether you attended and wish to remember the festivities or had to miss the event, please take a virtual look at the highlights below.

our services, our students, and our families–yesterday and today


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.
