Catholic Charities Gala 2024

The gala is a night for friends, colleagues and families – all supporters of Catholic Charities – to come together for a night of celebration.

About The Gala

Join CEO Jim Malloy and members of the Board of Directors as the festivities begin with a cocktail reception. With the theme “Together Forward,” the event will include a short program and dinner. It is topped off with entertainment and dancing.

You can expect a few surprises as the co-chairs and gala committee plan a fun-filled evening with the goal of providing vital funding to address the basic human needs of so many in our community who have nowhere else to turn. Regardless of social, economic or religious background, those in need of help and hope are uplifted by Catholic Charities and its many supporters.

Thank you to the members of the committee for their dedication to ensuring a successful and entertaining evening.
