Applause! Gala: A Night in Memphis

With the new season brings a new fiscal year, and we're thrilled to announce this season's Applause! Gala: A Night in Memphis. While the pandemic has wreaked havoc on our usual event timeline, we're so excited to introduce you to our extraordinary honorees at December's event, while raising money for our important outreach programs for children and their families.

Your participation in our Gala creates inclusive opportunities for children with autism and other challenges to participate in camp activities and provides scholarships to low-income families. Our flagship program, Partners That Heal, provides services to medical, respite, and crisis facilities across the region at no direct cost to the patient; your support through this event has made it possible for us to touch over 55,000 lives with this program since inception in 2008. Your attendance emboldens our outreach programming to continue spreading hope, healing, and understanding to children and families across the Valley and beyond.
