Please join us for our Circle of Care Duende Gala!

Those who have duende possess tremendous soul and magnetism that is both provocative and inspirational. The brave children and families we serve, while facing their greatest  challenge, all have a certain duende.’ We invite you to celebrate their boundless spirit on this special night.

Our “Duende” Gala will be a festive evening of dinner, live music and entertainment to celebrate these families and the friends, volunteers and generous donors who support our Circle of Care families.


Sponsorships, silent and live auction donations are still being accepted.


Thank you to our early sponsors!
