2023 Purica Gala

2023 Purica Gala

Back to the 80’s Box Office Hits

This year we’re dedicating the funds raised at our gala Healthiest Babies Possible, a program under the umbrella of the Hiiye’yu Lelum Society House of Friendship. This program serves pregnant women in their early childhood years. This includes improving prenatal nutrition, pregnancy knowledge, safe infant practices, childbirth education, and connection to community resources and primary care.

There are numerous ways that you can contribute – including event sponsorship, live and silent auction donations, and in-kind donations. Our ticket sales cover the event’s expenses and all sponsorships and other funds raised go directly to the Healthiest Babies Possible!
