Welcome to the 4th Annual Winter Gala Dinner & Silent Auction. We are returning to an in-person event this year and also including an online auction & raffle for those who cannot attend. We will be celebrating our amazing community supported summer youth program and raising funds for this coming summer.


The Gala Dinner & Silent Auction will once again be held at the Sacred Heart Fellowship Hall. The event will include dinner, beverages, live music, highlights from summers past, and the enticing Dessert Dash. We have partnered with Brooklyn and SE businesses to provide the food (The Chomp), beverages (Gigantic Brewing Co, 503 Distilling, Rose City Coffee), and desserts.  

We are also incorporating the online auction and raffle from last year's event. The online auction & raffle is free to register for and purchase of gala dinner & silent auction tickets automatically registers you this portion of the fundraiser. Bidding for the online items will start Feb 17th at 8am. You will also be able to view the in-person silent auction items starting on Feb 17th as well.

There will not be a livestream this year but you can follow your bidding and get notifications through the event website and auctria app
