Due to COVID-19, our annual gala has transitioned to a live virtual event, which will be streamed on Facebook Live on February 11, 2021 at 7 p.m. 

Join us for a fun, inspiring virtual event and learn about the impact our nonprofit is having on the community. All proceeds will benefit our early education programs for at-risk and underserved children in Collier County. 

While everyone on Facebook will be able to watch the event, only ticket holders will receive 10 exclusive chances to win many exciting prizes from raffles during the event. You must be present online to win. Ticket sales close on February 9 at 11:59 PM.

For those of you who have purchased a ticket by Saturday, February 6th, you will also receive an exclusive Child’s Path swag bag with fun surprises, as well as elegant nibbles and light bites to enjoy from the comfort of your own home.

Do you enjoy the thrill of bidding on items, while supporting a good cause? We have opened our online silent auction and made it available to everyone, whether or not you are a ticketholder. The online auction features a luxury vacation, VIP experiences, and dozens of other coveted items. Click here to sign up, look around, and start bidding now!
