Gift of Life Annual Gala

Celebrate the “Gift of Life” with us on April 28 at the Lyon Air Museum

Gift of Life Gala

“Gift of Life” annual gala on Saturday, April 28.

Join us at our 1940s themed gala, “Gift of Life,” at the Lyon Air Museum featuring cocktails, fine dining from Turnip Rose and live entertainment by Steven Michael and the Paul McDonald Big Band. The program will include a silent auction, a wine wall and a heartwarming testimony by a former resident of Mary’s Path. The event also will honor Rick and Karen Purpura with the Highest Impact Award for their dedication and service to the organization.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to have the community, friends and supporters come together with intent to invest in these teens, many of whom come to us with little more than hope,” said Mary’s Path Executive Director Ellen Roy. “These young girls have long histories of abuse, have experienced extreme trauma, and many of them have been victims of homelessness, abandonment, sex trafficking, poverty, neglect and sexual exploitation. There is so much to do to get them onto a path to recovery from their traumas so they can begin thriving in life.”

Individual dinner tickets for Gift of Life are $175. Sponsorship packages also are available, ranging from $1,750 to $25,000. Direct contributions are appreciated and welcomed for those unable to attend. Proceeds from the gala will support the needs of the teens and their babies at the residence, including education, medical and counseling services, transportation and basic childrearing needs.
