8th Annual Gala Info
Where: Harris Center, Folsom Lake College, Folsom CA
When: January 9th, 2020
Tickets go on sale Friday, November 1st at 10 AM
Each year we host a gala as part of our efforts to bring together the community that supports Kids Helping Kids Sacramento. It’s an elegant, black-tie event that is not limited to just a benefit concert, but also includes live and silent auctions. We have had award-winning artists perform in the past, notably Andy Grammar, NEEDTOBREATHE, and Echosmith, and have auctioned off over 300 items, including thousand-dollar vacations to Disneyland and Cabo.
All proceeds go directly to children with pediatric cancer.
When our guests leave the event they’re left with more than just an appreciation for the great items we offer – they leave with the memory of a varied and enjoyable show filled with charismatic presenters, polished customer service, and soulful music. But arguably the most moving aspect of the entire night is the palpable atmosphere of excitement, and the visible passion of the kids who spent hundreds of hours bringing it all together.
The Gala is our biggest event of the year, and it’s being planned and perfected from the very moment our previous gala ends, to the crucial second before the first guest walks in. Every year as we are able to expand our reach as a nonprofit, our gala grows and expands with us. As our gala grows, we are able to help even more children with pediatric cancer.
There is a sweeping feeling of exuberance as people who walked in as strangers walk out knowing that they are part of the Kids Helping Kids family, and that every penny they spend goes directly to help save a child’s life.
