Gala for Hope

The Leaven works! Our programs have been a proven success year after year. But we could never be as successful without the support of friends like you. That’s one reason we truly enjoy gathering each year with our supporters and their friends, family and co-workers, to share the story of The Leaven and the children and families we serve.

This money will go towards funding all of the Leaven’s existing programs, as well as help The Leaven open new centers.

Our Gala may still be six months away, but we are already hard at work, planning and organizing this life-changing event. And there are no two people harder at work than our Co-Chairs, Patsy Van Ouwerkerk and Sean Quinn.

Patsy is the former President of the Travis Credit Bureau and Sean is the former Fairfield City Manager; they are both strong leaders with a passion for The Leaven and its mission.

When asked about the event, Patsy said, “I was delighted to be asked to be part of this wonderful event. So many children have benefitted from The Leaven and now have the opportunity to look toward a brighter future than they may have ever imagined.” And Sean told us, “The Leaven is one of the best things I’ve ever seen for transforming neighborhoods.”

Because of the support of friends like you, the Annual Gala will help The Leaven continue to change lives, and that is why hope truly is the guest of honor at this event.

The Gala will include a cocktail hour, dinner, entertainment, and a silent auction to raise funds for our life-changing afterschool programs. Tickets to our Annual Gala will sell out quickly, so be sure to reserve your ticket today at Table sponsorships are also available.

You will not want to miss this exciting event where together we will help kids and communities rise!
