An evening of fun and inspiration!

In its 37th year, the Annual Family House Gala is a special celebration featuring dinner, dancing, live auction, heartwarming stories from some of our families, and so much more. Hundreds of dedicated friends, partners, and volunteers participate in this annual fundraising event. This year’s Gala was the most successful Family House Gala to date – raising over $1 million to help families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

Our Honoree: Okta

This year’s event honors the philanthropic and volunteer service of Okta for Good. The outstanding generosity and dedicated support of Okta employees and its CEO, Todd McKinnon, help Family House to provide 80 families per night with compassionate care and a home away from home while their child undergoes treatment for a life-threatening illness. View the video honoring Okta for Good.
