Gala

The Spirit of Children Gala is a beautiful event featuring a cocktail reception, live entertainment, open bar, gourmet dinner, and dancing, along with spectacular silent and live auctions! The Gala allows us to celebrate our mission and raise funds to help ease the burdens of families with seriously ill or injured children. Please join us at the Grand America Hotel on Saturday, April 27, 2019 for Banff – Where Enchantment Meets Adventure! As one of the world’s most awe-inspiring destinations, you’ll experience the spectacular Canadian Rocky Mountains and glacier-fed lakes, endless outdoor adventures, wildlife at its wildest and small-town charm with all the amenities you need… you will feel truly immersed in nature. Beginning at 5:30 pm you and your guests will enjoy a festive cocktail reception, followed by entertainment and dinner with a specially-tailored menu; all while in company with high-level executives and community leaders that are embracing the mission close to our hearts – keeping families together and stronger when it matters most. Join us for one of Salt Lake City’s top five fundraising events! This is a celebration you won’t want to miss. Thanks to the generosity of many extraordinary businesses, organizations, and individuals, we were able to raise over $1 million in 2018. This year we hope to surpass that amount to help provide over 26,000 room nights for families in need.

 

We are truly grateful to our amazing Gala sponsors and supporters! This year is a record year, and the event has sold out!  Thank you everyone for your participation.  If you were unable to purchase a table, and would still like to give your support, please consider making a donation to Helping Hands.  If you have questions, please contact vickie@rmhslc.org.
