Children’s Charity Gala: Up, Up & Away

May 5th, 2018 | 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The U.S. Grant Hotel

Thank you to our sponsors, supporters and guests!

Every year, in order to provide life-changing services to homeless families and children, Father Joe’s Villages must raise approximately $3.2 million through private donations — a little over $1 million for our Therapeutic Childcare Program alone. Father Joe’s Villages is thrilled to announce that this year’s Children’s Charity Gala raised over $900,000 for these critical programs. It truly was a beautiful evening, featuring a silent & live auction, 3-course cinner, paddle raise, live speaker Michael Gaulden and awards.

The event’s success was made possible by the donors, guests, supporters, volunteers and staff who believe in our mission to see San Diego shine. We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to all of the ticket and ad purchasers, table sponsors, honorees, event sponsors and night-of donors who are helping us end homelessness, one life at a time.

Thank you to our honorees:

  • Franklin AntonioFather Joe’s Villages Award
  • Cathedral Catholic High SchoolBishop Maher Award
  • St. Augustine High SchoolBishop Maher Award
  • James Mulvaney, Sr. & the Mulvaney FamilyFounders’ Award
