What an amazing evening! Over 400 guests—most in costume—celebrated our 21st annual Gala with us. Thanks to them, and our sponsors and food and beverage suppliers, we are able to proudly announce that this was our most successful fundraiser to date, allowing us to continue to provide all of our community’s kids with a safe, sweet place to create, imagine, play and learn!
The Gala is our most important fundraising event of the year—an opportunity for businesses and individuals to show their support for our beloved storybook theme park. This year, we raised more than $100,000 to support our mission of imagination and literacy. Guests arrived in fairy-tale and storybook attire, and danced under the stars.
Save the date! Our 22nd annual Gala will be held on Thursday, June 1, 2017.
