About the Gala

Samaritan House’s Annual Gala, “Cheers to Fifty Years” will be an evening to remember as we take a look back at the past 50 years and celebrate the thousands of lives that Samaritan House has empowered over the decades. Join us on Friday, March 15th and be part of the community of individuals, families, foundations, corporations, and partners who are dedicated to preserving dignity and promoting self-sufficiency for our neighbors in need, today and into the future. As we enter our golden year, we have more reasons than ever to come together in the fight against poverty. Join us for a night of celebrating the past and inspiring the future. The evening will feature a motivating program, dinner, live auction, and amazing live music that will have you dancing the night away.
