Each Fall during the last twenty years, the community has come together for a Charity Gala to celebrate and to support the work of Family and Children’s Services Niagara. Thanks to hundreds of participants and sponsors – many of whom continue to support FACS year-after-year – the Gala has raised more than $725,000 to assist Niagara’s more vulnerable children, youth, and families.
The FACS Niagara Gala will include live entertainment, a cocktail reception, both Live and Silent Auctions, Little Luxuries and Kid’s Art Auction, VQA Wine Wall, a delicious Antipasto Buffet and Dinner, and lively After-Party with the Mad Hatters. This black-tie optional charitable event will be an evening to remember!
A Little Bit About Us
Family & Children’s Services Niagara works with some of our community’s most vulnerable children and their families. While FACS provides protection and support services for kids and families, FACS Niagara Foundation provides enrichments and opportunities to help local kids and families be the best they can be. Although FACS receives funding to provide core services, FACS Foundation plays an important role in FACS’ mission by providing funds to enhance the programs and services offered, therefore relying on corporate, group and individual donors and other private sources of funding. Recreation, education and capital projects are just a few examples of how the Foundation supports FACS in their important work.
