This black-tie optional event raises funds for Every Child, a ministry of The Chapel which assists foster parents with the costs associated with taking in children in need. These costs can be school supplies, transportation to medical and other appointments and more. The program also assists persons in becoming certified foster parents. Funds raised will also continue to assist CAFFA and the Children's Services of Niagara County.  To see how funds from our past Galas have helped, visit our About the Committee page. 

The 2017 Gala will be March 4th at the Rapids Theatre, 1711 Main Street, Niagara Falls, NY ( beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Representatives from Ever Child will provide an incredible presentation on the life of a foster child.  

The cocktail reception will include open bar and delectable food stations created by Rich’s Catering, Live and silent auctions will be held. This years auction items include a trip of your dreams and an overnight stay at Russell's! There will be a Michael Kors package and Tory Burch sunglasses for the ladies and an autographed football from Jim Kelly for the guys.
