POSTPONED TO 2021: THE ANNUAL GAPABA GALA


We regret to have to further extend our GAPABA Gala to the new date of September 30, 2021. For all of our Sponsors who have already contributed, your sponsorship dollars will be applied to the rescheduled gala at the same level that was previously offered. We will also offer our sponsors the option to apply your sponsorship dollars to a virtual holiday celebration that we will host in 2020, details to be announced at a later date.


Thank you to everyone who has supported our organization by attending our events, contributing your ideas, volunteering and providing monetary and other support. Your ongoing interest in our mission is the reason for our continued success, even in the midst of the pandemic. 


If you have any questions, please contact sponsors@gapaba.org.
