UNLOCKED: "The Art of Giving"

Fri, Oct 27th 2023 at 6:00 PM ET

The Gala: UNLOCKED, formerly Unmask Your Story, celebrates the unlocking of families from homelessness to home stabilization and now, homeownership. The annual Gala will include an Unlock the Key Auction, followed by dinner and entertainment in our “UNLOCKED Lounge,” recognizing individuals in the community with Building Legacy Awards for those who are making a profound impact on our mission. We will also celebrate the achievements of our families that have participated in our program, and they will share their experiences, struggles and triumphs.
