Annual Forty One Gala sells out

February 7, 2013 by  

The Forty One Gala may be over a week away, but it has already sold out for another year.

The gala raises funds for Noah’s Children – an organization and facility that provides pediatric palliative and hospice care free of charge. It is Central Virginia’s only such facility.

The gala, which is presented annually by the Bon Secours Richmond Health Care Foundation, is also celebrating the 15th anniversary of Noah’s Children. In addition to its hospice care and palliative programs, Noah’s Children also provides workshops for parents who have recently lost children.

Those attending the gala will be treated to substantial hors d’oeuvres, wine, live music from Mo’Sol, a silent auction, and a live auction. No doubt those attending will be honored to help support such a worthwhile cause for such a necessary facility.

Sponsorships from $500 – $15,000 are still available for those who were unable to obtain tickets to the event, which themselves were priced at $125. Other sponsorships include supplying a backpack with school supplies for $65, a child’s birthday party for $200, a week at camp for $300, and music therapy priced at $300 a month. Richmond business owners can also donate items to be auctioned off. They could also work with local printing companies to let their customers know that they have donated an item, to help raise awareness of and to raise more funds for Noah’s Children.

The Forty One Gala will take place at the Jefferson Hotel on February 16, beginning at 7:00 pm.
