The 2020 gala, Twilight in the Tropics, has been postponed to April 2021 due to COVID-19.   

Each year, this single event raises more than $100,000 to benefit general operations of The Children's House. To help us reach our fundraising goal without our main fundraising event, please make a gift online, plan to bid in our upcoming online silent auction, and buy raffle tickets. Thank you.
