HISTORY

Held at picturesque Zenith Vineyard in Oregon's esteemed wine country, Uncorked Wine Auction features a Wine Maker's reception, gourmet three-course meal, and silent and live auctions offering exclusive luxury experience packages. With over 400 guests annually, this first-class event has helped raise over $3 million since 2008 to keep children safe and families together in Marion and Polk counties.

FUNDRAISING GOAL: $500,000

The need is great. For every one family enrolled in our programs, there are at least three more who remain unserved and would greatly benefit from support. Our therapeutic classrooms, home visiting, and parent education programs help over 780 families in Marion and Polk counties. Annually, 99% of children in our prevention programs remain living safely with their families, avoiding foster care and the devastation of abuse and neglect.

BENEFITING 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 the 2017 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.
