Champions Gala 2023 Photos and Thank You

The Champion’s Gala was a huge success. We cannot thank those who attended enough for their support.

Here’s a note from our board President, Rafael Labrador:

Thank you. I use those two words often, but they never quite seem to be enough.

As I think back on last week’s Champion’s Gala, I am filled with so much gratitude that it’s hard to properly express it in words. Due to Covid restrictions, this was our first large-scale event since 2020 and we set records in attendance and money raised, and we are more than halfway towards reaching our annual scholarship goal.

With your generosity, we will continue to set more records this year giving out camp, swim lessons, and athletic scholarships to children and families in our community. Whether you donated, attended the Gala, or purchased a live or silent auction item, YOU helped us reach those goals and work toward our mission of helping all people live their best lives. For this, I thank you and I hope to see you at next year’s event.
