Children’s Charity Gala

Father Joe’s Villages’ Children’s Charity Gala: Reach for the Stars raised proceeds to support the organization’s therapeutic childcare center and other services for children and families. The evening began with a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by an exquisite dinner, award program, and dancing to live music by Atomic Groove. Father Joe’s Villages honored community leaders whose ongoing support has helped neighbors experiencing poverty and homelessness reach new heights. This year’s honorees included Las Patronas, the late Barbara Claire Caster, and Congregation Beth Israel’s Hunger Project.
