Hold on to your hats: this year, instead of one gala, we’ll be bringing you four UnGalas  all throughout the year. Each event will feature dining, drinking, and some very exciting entertainment along with live and silent auction items and opportunity drawings.


Sirens of the Sea
Saturday, November 9th 6pm-10pm

Extravagance in the extreme, featuring a steak and lobster dinner, 180-degree views of the sea, and exquisite arias and songs of the sea performed by a group of “sirens.” Opulence will abound at the Queensview Steakhouse at Parker’s Lighthouse.
