2020 Once Upon A Time Gala


The Once Upon a Time in-person Gala has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and we are pivoting to a virtual approach, which will include an online auction.  The children and families we serve are already overwhelmed by poverty, housing insecurity and neighborhood violence, they now face a serious new health threat.


We need your support now more than ever.
