About the Gala

The annual springtime gala is our signature fundraising event and a highlight of the year … and accounts for 38% 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 “2021 A Gala of Giving: Comforts of Home” and we are hosting in a hybrid fashion with an outdoor event at the venue itself (Embassy Suites Destiny USA) and a live stream of the program also broadcasted to those guests who host “home” parties, while others will be at the upscale “tailgate” party under a large white tent in the parking lot of Embassy Suites and we will be viewing the presentations on large screens outdoors.
