Next, our signature Giving for Joy Gala came just last week. It was a smashing success, raising enough to host an entire retreat in 2018! In addition to the brass quintet, photo booth (click here to see your photos), and silent and live auctions, the 150 plus attendees had a blast playing games, a Dessert Dash, and so much more.
” ‘Ohana Oasis and the island of Kaua’i have become my new loves, replacing the scar tissue in my heart with strands of gold.”
– Ann Martindale, 2016 retreat participant, sharing from her heart and moving everyone in the ballroom.
Thanks to Naim Hasan Photography, who graciously donated his time to take amazing pictures that captured the essence of the night! You can view the whole album here.
