River Garden Foundation ‘No Go Gala’
The River Garden Foundation Gala is the major annual fundraising event for River Garden Hebrew Home, held each November. Gala proceeds are a significant portion of our annual fundraising efforts, supporting River Garden’s mission to serve the entire community with caring and excellence.
Over the past 27 incredible years, we have celebrated many memorable moments through the River Garden Galas. We have welcomed the Phantom to the stage, seen the bright lights of Havana, and most recently visited Shanghai together. This year’s Gala Chairs, Allison & Ken Jacobs, and the fabulous Gala committee planned to create another successful celebration!
We are heartbroken that, for obvious reasons, we will not be holding the event this year. While we will miss seeing each of you in person for our celebration, we know what truly unites us is our shared commitment to River Garden.
Though we are not having the event, we still have to raise the funds that the Gala usually produces. The proceeds from the Gala directly benefit the residents of the Home and help to bridge caused by the annual loss of $1 million caused by Medicaid.
We are asking our long-time loyal and generous friends to help us support our ‘No Go Gala’ in their usual way. We are very pleased that SunTrust Now Truist has agreed to be the premier ‘No Go Gala’ Sponsor. Many others have already followed in their steps. We hope you will be next.
We are asking that you please honor our work by making a donation as you might have in the past. Giving now means more than ever. In return, you have our sincerest appreciation.
