Tanager Place

(Un)Gala gifts include a chance to win

We wanted to be standing with you on March 28 at our annual Gala, celebrating 140 years of caring and laying a solid foundation for the next century. Instead, we face uncharted territory. The coronavirus pandemic heightens mental health needs while threatening traditional access to services.

So, it is in the midst of this that we pause to remember what we value most and recommit to our mission – and we are asking you to do the same.

We invite you to be part of a special Un-Event Event, an (Un)Gala, so that we can continue to honor generous sponsors and embrace mission. Your continued commitment creates opportunities for children and families, today and for the next 140 years.

Your $140 gift in honor of Tanager Place’s 140-year commitment to children and families provides direct support during this difficult time. 

And, thanks to two generous sponsors, you have the chance to win a trip to Palm Desert, California. Two round-trip airline tickets and a condo at Marriott Desert Springs that sleeps eight will be awarded to one lucky winner. Each $140 gift earns a chance for the October trip. Thanks to Travel Leaders/Destinations Unlimited and Shantel Klinger for the donations that make this contest possible. Should domestic travel be restricted in October, we’ll help arrange a different date.

More information about the trip is in the graphic below.

2020 Tanager Place (Un)Gala ContestAll gifts made on or before April 30, 2020 are eligible for the drawing. Please visit the (un)event page to make your donation. 

Thank you for your generosity and for being part of the Tanager Place story.
