A Note for Families in Process to Adopt: We appreciate your generosity and interest in our Annual Gala; however, our regular tickets do contain a tax-deductible portion and we are not able to accept donations from families in process. If you would still like to attend, we encourage you to reach out to our Special Events Director, Jeorjie Ornstein, at to learn about the non-donation ticket options available to families in process for this event. Thank you.
