The Gala is the single largest fundraising event for GRACE and revenues from the event are used to fund the many programs and services offered to GRACE clients throughout the year. This year the Gala will return to the Gaylord Texan on October 26, 2019.

We have a fierce and dedicated Gala committee that helps solicit funding and we are in need of volunteers to join this amazing group!

Auction Committee:

This year the Auction Chair will be Daveen Miller. During 2018 Gala Season, she was the Auction co-chair. Daveen needs volunteers to help solicit items from restaurants and stores around the area for the Silent, Big Board, and Live Auctions.

If asking for items isn’t your thing, have no fear she has other jobs available! She also needs people to pick up items from stores, arrange items into baskets, and set-up the Auction tables the weekend of.


Sponsorship Committee:

We are also in need of great volunteers who can contact businesses in the area to sponsor the Gala! Help us help our neighbors! Volunteers will assist Chief Development Officer Mark Woolverton in gathering sponsors for this premiere event.

Please email Volunteer Coordinator Sarah Armand at if you are interested in either of these areas.
