Now celebrating its 28th year, the annual Gala of Trees has raised nearly $1.6 million. This support stays in Marion and Polk counties helping the children and families in our community.

The first annual Gala of Trees was held in 1990. Since that time, many nonprofit organizations serving children in need in Marion and Polk counties have been the beneficiary of this premier holiday event. All proceeds raised at The Gala of Trees benefits Boys & Girls Aid and Family Building Blocks. This multi-year partnership is sure to make a significant impact for children and families in the community.

Family Building Blocks and Boys & Girls Aid work to promote the safety and stability of children. Whether they remain with their biological families or find permanency with adoptive parents, we believe children have the most opportunity for success when raised with loving and caring adults.

Through this partnership, we hope to increase awareness of children in need and raise funds to address the growing demand. Our vision is for all children in our community to be safe, thriving, and out of foster care. Together, as a community, we can ensure the well-being of our youngest generation and future generations to follow.

With gratitude,

Suzan L. Huntington
Ed.D. President & CEO, Boys & Girls Aid

Executive Director, Family Building Blocks
