Valerie’s House announces annual fundraising gala
Valerie’s House, a place where grieving children find comfort, compassion and hope, announces its fourth annual Sunset Soirée gala and fundraiser will be from 6-9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 28, at Quail West Country Club in Naples.
The event is a special night for those who embrace the mission and accomplishments of Valerie’s House, and will highlight children, the activities they participate in and their experiences at Valerie’s House. Guests will enjoy a cocktail hour, dinner and entertainment, with plenty of surprises mixed in along the way. ABC7 evening news anchor Krista Fogelsong will once again emcee the event.
“We all know how difficult a time it is right now because of the Coronavirus and how it has changed our lives and the lives of children we help each day at Valerie’s House,” founder and chief executive officer Angela Melvin said. “As we continue to get through this together, we hope this event provides the light and inspiration to build on our journey of hope. We are eternally grateful to those who have given of their treasure in the past and for those who will join our journey in the future. The Sunset Soirée is a very valuable part of our journey.”
The Sunset Soirée may begin at sunset, but the night is about creating a new beginning for children, who may have struggled after the sudden loss of a family member.
Tickets will be $250 per person or $1,500 for a table of six. For information on ticket sales or for updates on the event, go to www.ValeriesHouseSWFL.org.
