GALA OF TREES BENEFITS FAMILY BUILDING BLOCKS AND BOYS & GIRLS AID

The first annual Gala of Trees was held in 1990. Since that time, many nonprofit organizations serving children in need in Marion and Polk counties have been the beneficiary of this premier holiday event. 

We are excited to announce Gala of Trees will benefit children served in the local community by Boys & Girls Aid and Family Building Blocks. This multi-year partnership is sure to make a significant impact for children and families in the community.

Both organizations work to promote the safety and stability of children. Whether they remain with their biological families or find permanency with adoptive parents, we believe children have the most opportunity for success when they are raised by loving and caring adults. 

Through this partnership, we hope to increase awareness of children in need and raise funds to address the growing demand. Our vision is for all children in our community to be safe, thriving, and out of foster care. We hope you share our excitement about this partnership! Together, as a community, we can ensure the well-being of our youngest generation and future generations to follow.
