Goodwill Gala

Goodwill Gala 2017October 27, 2017 Goodwill Gala

On Friday, October 27th, 2017, Goodwill of Orange County will host its fourth annual Goodwill Gala. We are excited to announce this year’s event will be hosted at the Monarch Beach Resort, located in Dana Point!

We are also honored to share that prominent local philanthropists Thomas T. and Elizabeth C. Tierney will chair the 2017 Gala. Their leadership will take this event to the place it deserves to be: among the most prominent in Orange County. In 2015, the Tierneys gave a transformational $1 million gift to Goodwill to create our Tierney Center for Veteran Services. The gift remains the organization’s largest program-specific donation in our history. The Tierneys have an incredible history of philanthropy and a passion for helping people heal. With their guidance, we will undoubtedly be positioned to serve even more people with barriers.

In the three short years since its inception, the Goodwill Gala has raised more than $1,800,000. 2016 Gala proceeds allowed us to serve more than 5,000 people through our three important programs: the Assistive Technology Exchange Center (ATEC), the Tierney Center for Veteran Services, and the Rogers A. Severson Fitness & Technology Center. The 2017 Gala will again benefit these three key programs. None of this would be possible without your generous support.

We hope that you will take a leadership role as an official sponsor of the 2017 Gala. By sponsoring the Goodwill Gala, your tax-deductible support will directly benefit the lives of one of the most underserved populations in Orange County, providing opportunities for people to work for the first time, walk for the first time…even speak for the first time.

If you have questions, please contact Amy Holtz at 714.547.6308 ext. 356 or by email at amyh@ocgoodwill.org.

Our work is not complete. We remain dedicated to our mission and truly believe that the power of work changes lives.
