We are thrilled you will be joining us for the 2019 Night of Giving Gala! This year Southwest Youth & Family Services is celebrating the powerful connections that have been built this past year, and challenging our community to join us in bridge building. At a time when society feels more and more fragmented, and the political landscape is dividing and separating us, bridge building is essential. We need to build bridges to each other, to the “other”, to equitable and just resources, and to partnerships that form a stronger community.

The 2019 Gala will be a night of fun and inspiration, as we celebrate the bridges that have been built in our community this year through participants, partners, and donors like you. We will unite to continue bridge building for a strong, equitable community where all families can thrive.
