A Gala to remember

by | Nov 21, 2017

Thank you for making the Gala a success!

Wow! Our 2017 Gala was absolutely incredible! We are so grateful for everyone’s generosity and commitment to powering this movement. It’s because of your generosity that we were able to surpass our goal and raise over $170,000!! These funds go directly to our operations and make it possible for us to invest in partnerships and projects that have a lasting impact. It’s humbling, inspiring, and exciting to be part of this movement with you, and we can’t say thank you enough!

We love celebrating stories of impact and sharing our goals for the future of ODW, so thank you for being part of that! This year we featured impact reports that shared stories from our work, as well as a behind the scenes look at ODW. Dinner was sit down this time and catered by the amazing Herban Feast. Our auction and dessert dash were a hug hit! Guests got to bid on incredible items from luxury spa retreats, top of the line camping gear, to adventuring through air in a flight simulator. Guests also got to take a deeper look into Eugene Cho’s vision for ODW and the important work we’re doing right now to provide relief for people seeking refuge in the Middle East.

If you weren’t able to join us this year, but would still like to give or sign up to be a monthly Core Supporter, you can do so here. You can also see if your company matches donations and double the impact of your gift by going here.
