Our Need to “UN-Gala” the 2020

In order to protect our guests throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with mixed emotions that we have decided to “UN-Gala” our 2020 “A Gala of Giving” based largely upon social distancing guidelines still in effect. Our priority and concern is the health, comfort, and safety of our guests and attendees — so we feel this is the right decision at this time.

Instead of hosting the actual event, please stay tuned for our online / “virtual event” that will be a FUND THE HOUSE:  Help us Reach our Rooftop! campaign to help support the house and the guests we continue to serve! This will kick-off on October 1st and details will be released soon!

We will now host the 2021 “A Gala of Giving” on Friday, April 30, 2021 at Embassy Suites Destiny USA as planned this year  — getting us back to our traditional springtime schedule. Bankers Healthcare Group has graciously agreed to Present the 2021 Gala as Presenting Sponsor again and we are so grateful for this support!

Please save the new date for next year!

About the Gala

The annual springtime gala is our signature fundraising event and a highlight of the year … and accounts for 30% of our annual budget — allowing us to serve our 1,200+ house guests each year!

A Gala of Giving is always a magical evening of fine food and spirits, live and silent auctions, musical entertainment, and special Sarah’s Guest House tributes.

This year, our theme is “2020 VISION: Our Look Ahead” and we are hosting in the perfect setting: the hip, modern and chic Embassy Suites Destiny USA!  Join in on the fun and festivities while supporting our “home away from home” for patients and their families!
