Gala: Community, Soul & Elegance

Saturday, February 18, 2017

Community, Soul & Elegance is the theme for this year’s gala. We will honor and celebrate individuals who have made positive contributions to and impact on the Cameron House community and the greater San Francisco Bay Area.

We look forward to having 500 supporters reconnect with old friends, meet new people who share our beliefs, and learn more about our programs.

Come join us for a night of reunion, celebration, and dance!

We’ll have lots of fun auction items to bid on  – all for a great cause – making a positive impact on the low-income immigrant youth and families that we serve with love and compassion every day!
