The 13th Annual TGF Gala is just around the corner--it will be on Saturday, November 4th!
The location is once again the San Mateo Elks Club at 229 W. 20th Avenue, San Mateo, CA.  The schedule is as follows:

5:30 PM – Champagne Reception & Silent Auction
7:30 PM – Dinner & Live Auction


This yearly event is the Foundation's biggest fundraiser and enables us to continue our work, providing support and services to individuals and families affected by addiction, violence and/or loss.

This fall we will rally our corporate and local business sponsors, reach out to donors for enticing auction items, and encourage friends and supporters to register and attend the Gala.  



Buy Your Gala Tickets Today, and Bring Friends!

Gala tickets are available now.  

If you know anyone who has been touched by addiction, violence or loss in their life, consider inviting them to the event as a guest.  Let them know there are people who care and recognize the importance of support and services in our communities.

Call for Auction Items

If you can’t donate your time, perhaps you can make an in-kind donation in the form of an auction item. Our most popular items include vacation rentals or hotel stays, wine donations and restaurant gift certificates.  If you have a gift card or two that have gone unused, consider increasing the value by donating it to the Foundation to support our fundraising efforts.

Call for Sponsors and Donors

Do you have a business or know of a business that would benefit from being recognized and advertised as a sponsor of good work in the community?  If you’ve personally been touched by the impact of addiction, violence or loss in your own life, consider what impact your support can have on the lives of others.  We have several levels of sponsorship available to fit any size business and any level of desire to “pay it forward.”
