The 5th Annual Gallery of Hope Gala was a Success!

Last Monday, we unveiled the 2018 Gallery of Hope during our annual Gala. The Gallery of Hope is an exhibit composed of donated photographs from local photographers, which capture the intimate relationship between our CASA Advocates and the children we serve.

The 2018 exhibit features work by the following: Megan Bowling, Leon Dacbert, George De La Torre, Alex Hilmy, Josh Huskin, Natalia Sun, Andrew Lopez, Jessica Mewborne, Amanda Rodriguez, Ismael Rodriguez, and Joe Raymond Vega.

This year’s event, was held once again at The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. Guests were greeted with an open bar stocked with signature cocktails and enjoyed delectable hors d'oeuvres throughout the evening. The beautifully lit performance hall was truly transformed into an art gallery awash with custom lighting. Guests were also treated to the Latin Fusion Music of James Martin and his band. Prior to our Fund Hope appeal the audience was able to see the photos come to life with a moving video. Community support through sponsorships, ticket sales and auction items will also allow us to provide an Advocate for 200 children, previously unserved by CASA. Our live auction featured multiple art pieces, a hunting trip, a date night and 2 Spurs packages. For the last three years Los Otros, provided a custom art piece that was once again the top revenue generator at the live auction.

This year we were proud to have many returning sponsors as well as a few new sponsors. This demonstration of community support allowed this year’s event to once again be successful. The CASA staff is continuously blown away by the giving spirit that we witness within our community. Thank you for supporting CASA through the Gallery of Hope Gala!
