Special Love’s Annual Gala

Dates TBD


More Information

Plan to join us for an evening of Cocktails and S’mores to Keep Campfires Burning.

Chic and Campy will be a fun-filled evening at Special Love’s “camp” themed gala, where we’ll encourage our guests, like our real-life campers, to just be kids again.   In addition to the traditional cocktails, dinner and dancing, attendees will have the opportunity to roast marshmallows over an open fire to build their own s’mores, partake in a camp craft project, bid on items handmade by campers, as well as items from generous donors, and learn from our young Camp Ambassadors what Special Love has meant in their lives.

All proceeds for this event benefit Special Love’s free, year-round camps, emergency financial relief, and educational scholarships.
