2020 Virtual Gala Event Summary & Totals

Updated: Oct 21, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Annual Gala moved to an online format for 2020. The theme for the event was Boots & Bling Virtual Fling. We held a Silent Auction the week leading up to the Live Event, with over 40 wonderful items available for bidding. There was also a Prize Puzzle where supporters could choose a donation puzzle piece to transform a photograph online. On Saturday, August 22nd, we streamed our Gala Event live from Second Baptist Church in Santa Ana, complete with entertainment, award presentations, and other fun surprises. The event was a great success, raising much-needed funds for families experiencing homelessness in Orange County.

Thank you to everyone who donated, participated, and tuned in to the event!
