Annual Angels Dinner


The Galilee Center Angels Dinner is our annual fundraising event and includes dinner, cocktails, entertainment and a silent auction. Proceeds from this upscale event directly support our many vital programs.

Galilee Center is a non-profit organization that believes in improving social conditions for vulnerable individuals and families who have been negatively impacted by harsh economic realities. Galilee Center serves more than 300 families on a weekly basis, providing assistance with food, clothing, shoes, utilities, rentals, backpacks, baby food and formula, plus toys during the holiday season.

The success of this annual fundraiser depends on the generosity of individuals and the business community that generously donate auction items, and provides critical financial support through sponsorships.
Thank you for your caring support…It is greatly appreciated.
