Charitable Giving for Our Birthday
In addition to raising money for our non-profit professional association, a portion of the Gala’s ticket income will be donated to LGBTQ Connection Napa-Sonoma via On the Move. LGBTQ Connection exists to foster a healthy, diverse and inclusive community. In Napa and Sonoma Counties the program operates local LGBTQ community centers, supporting underserved LGBTQ youth and elders.
We are also partnering with The Princess Project to collect gently used or new formal wear. The Princess Project promotes self-confidence and individual beauty by providing free prom dresses, promwear and accessories to high school teens who could not otherwise afford them. If you have any questions about our promwear collection efforts, please contact Andrea Koweek, firstname.lastname@example.org.
