Annual Gala

Annual Gala

An evening out for a great cause

Event Details

Our annual gala is always a magical evening that celebrates all things Friendly Center. From the enthusiasm of students in the after-school program to the success of families breaking down the barriers of poverty, the gala is definitely an exciting evening.

Join us this year and get out of the house while helping raise needed funding, all within the safety of your vehicle. Hear, over the radio, how the lives of children and families have been touched by Friendly Center during these challenging times.

DRIVE IN  |  EAT  |  DRINK  |  TUNE IN  |  ENJOY THE NIGHT

You’ll enjoy raffles, games, video clips, a presentation from some of our students and an update from staff. (No actual movie will be shown)

A live, in-person event, meant to be enjoyed from your vehicle.
