Get your tickets now for a star-studded evening of entertainment honoring Assistance League Bay Area members who have served the Bay Area for the past 25 years.

Get ready to walk down the red carpet and into a room full of shimmering stars and enticing silent and live auction items that can be yours.

Dance the night away with fabulous D.J. Phillip Pampolina and PRP Entertainment Co., along with a beautiful performance by School of Dance directed by Jill Rauscher.

Later in the night there will be games to play and surprise appearances from Special Events of Houston Entertainment Event Co.

You will not want to miss a minute of this action-packed event.

These 25-year honorees will be highlighted in a short presentation: Atiya Abouleish, Linda Byrd, Ebby Creden, Sharon Dillard, Cathy Giesinger, Elizabeth Glenn, Leslie Huff, Faye Kidder, Jeana Magness, Melinda Marcum, Cathy McDaniel, Jan Parks, Barbara Rosenthal and Charlotte Teeter.

Since the gala is one of our largest fundraisers of the year, your help is needed with sponsorships, ranging from $250-$5000 or spotlight tables for $1,500, as well as ads in our program that will help us continue to make a difference in this community.

We are proud to announce that so far this year through Operation School Bell we have provided nearly 2,000 children with a week’s worth of new clothes, a pair of shoes and hygiene kits. You can help us continue this service or increase this number next year.

Assistance League has seven philanthropies. Operation Cinderella helps many high school seniors’ dreams come true by providing them with clothing to attend their prom.

Our partnership with Communities In Schools helps students at risk. The Kids’ U Scholarship Program in Partnership with UH Clear Lake provides tuition assistance to children from families in need so they may attend summer enrichment programs.

Assistance League partners with United Way Bay Area for its Ready For Work program, providing appropriate business clothing for individuals searching for employment.

Our Hands from the Heart philanthropy is a way to reach out to the elderly with compassion and friendship by providing monthly manicures.

Here is your opportunity to help a local all-volunteer nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with more than 200 volunteers continue to fulfill the needs of our community.

How can you help? If you would like to be a sponsor, purchase a spotlight table or program ad, please contact Annual Fundraiser Chairman Kathleen Courville, 281-535-0781, or contact the chapter office, 281-554-2594.

You can purchase tickets for the annual fundraiser at our Assistance League Resale Shop, 100 E. NASA Parkway, Suite 80 (behind Ace Cash Express), in League City.
