Annual Gala

Help Impact the Lives of Others through our Gala

About the Annual Gala

Each year Great River Faith in Action hosts two fundraisers to support the elderly and families in need. Our annual gala is one of those events. The gala is held each March at a venue in the area. Guests enjoy an evening of food, entertainment and the chance to win great silent and live auction items. By supporting this event you are impacting the lives of others.
