Attention Gala Attendees: We've added a FAQ and will be updating it as we get closer to the show date.

About the Gala

Now in its 37th year, our Annual Gala & Fundraiser serves to honor our beneficiaries as well as our generous donors who help us provide critical resources and opportunities for those in need.

The women, children, and families we serve in India are among the most marginalized members of society. They live in poverty and often face extreme discrimination. Most lack access to basic necessities. Through our holistic, grassroots Signature Programs, we provide these individuals with lifesaving healthcare and opportunities for education, gender equality, abuse prevention, and more.

About the Theme

Take the Wheel: Drive to Erase Inequality

Though we live in a rapidly evolving world, we believe there are some things that never change — such as our responsibility to help one another, particularly those at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder. At this year’s gala we will celebrate our achievements from the past 37 years while also keeping our hearts on the road and mission ahead: to erase inequality in India and around the globe, one family at a time.
