Signature events enable A Kid’s Place to raise critical funds for our programs. The Annual Golf Classic, held at the beautiful Avila Golf and Country Club, is a popular event filled with fun contests and exciting prizes. The Home is Where the Heart is Holiday Stroll is a beloved tradition on Davis Island to help kick off the holiday season with music, food, and festivities. The Fostering Hope Black Tie Gala provides guests with an exciting evening of live entertainment, dinner, dancing, silent and live auctions, all with A Kid’s Place friends and supporters. We are incredibly grateful for our committees, corporate and community partners that help make these events successful.
