The New Phoebe House 2018 gala was one to remember! With more than 250 guests and 15 incredible sponsors, we raised nearly $120,000. This money went directly toward operational expenses, which included a week-long mother-child bonding camping trip to Vashon Island. This annual trip is something our mothers look forward to each year and provides our Phoebe kids with a quintessential childhood experience that is not only meaningful, it strengthens relationships and builds trust.
Our event wouldn’t have been successful without the gracious support of our sponsors. Our Gold Sponsor was the Inn at Gig Harbor, Silver Sponsors included the Cardinal Financial Company, Guild Mortgage Company, CHI Franciscan Health, Colvos Construction, Coordinated Care, Dwell Home Team, Evergreen Home Loans, Morton McGoldrick, P.S., New American Funding, American Pacific Mortgage, TICOR Title Company, The Schiro Family, and Ken and Julie Pierce Tepley. The Bronze Sponsorship was secured by The Smalley Berman Group at Morgan Stanley.
2019 is set to be our best yet. The Illuminating Paths: New Phoebe House Gala will be held on Saturday March 9, at the Hotel Murano. We are expecting more than 400 guests this year and are already selling tickets and sponsorships. Thank you to our early commitments of Colvos Construction, CHI Franciscan Health, Schiro Financial, South Sound Magazine, and Jim and Lindsey Jensen for your support.
Currently, New Phoebe House can only serve 15 women and up to 11 children, and there is a significant need for more space to serve more women and children. To help meet demand, a portion of the funds raised at the 2019 Illuminating Paths: New Phoebe House Gala will go toward expansion efforts to allow New Phoebe House to serve more women, establish a reunification center and provide on-site childcare.
Are you ready to help make a difference for women and children experiencing homelessness and drug addiction? Please join us March 2 at Hotel Murano for an incredible night where we honor the success of the women we serve, celebrate their success, and work to give them more.
