2020 Gala & Auction
Our 2016-2021 Strategic Plan stipulates that we cannot begin to use any funds generated by the Endowment until it reaches $6 million. As of today, we are so close to attaining our goal, and we decided to dedicate the full proceeds from this year's Gala & Auction as well as the
Fund-a-Need to reaching the finish line.

See below for this year's amazing Live Auction Lots.
