2015 GCF Gala

2015 Evening of Global Hope Gala

thumbs_140On February 28, 2015, our 4rd Annual GCF Gala at the Beautiful Spanish Trail Country Club in Las Vegas was a fabulous and successful evening!

GCF’s annual gala was an amazing night of generosity, community and fun. GCF supporters, board members and volunteers from around the country attended GCF’s “Dance the Night Away” gala raised more than $39,000 for GCF’s mission with our lively live auction and profitable silent auction.

The gala was attended by more than 165 supporters who generously gave their time and donations to support GCF’s ongoing missions in Las Vegas and around the world.

We want to thank Glen Lerner and Associates for being our most generous event sponsor of our Gala.

We, also, would like to thank our caring table sponsors Safe Money Advisors, Inc. and Wells Fargo Private Bank.

Also, a big thanks to supporters who participated in GCF’s raffle, silent auction and our lively, entertaining live auction.

The highlight of the night was the introduction of 10 students in our tutoring program in partnership with 100 Black Men of Las Vegas. One of our eighth grade student was able to present a heart-felt speech in support of the tutoring program and its impact on her education and future.

GCF’s supporters and their generosity pushed the fundraising goal past any previously achieved by GCF, making this the most successful gala in GCF’s brief, but eventful, history. The night closed with everyone in attendance on the dance floor, dancing the night away, after a successful and entertaining evening. Without a doubt, everyone in attendance is looking forward to GCF’s 2015 Gala!
