tickets

Join us for a memorable evening that will include a seated dinner program, live entertainment, powerful stories, and a chance to learn how YOU can partner with Treasures to help reach and restore hope to victims of sexual exploitation and trafficking.

The gala is our only fundraising event each year and is vital to our ability to continue serving over 5,000 women annually and training other leaders around the globe to do the same.

Here is one of many similar messages Treasures receives weekly:

“It has taken me two DUIs leaving the same strip club to realize this industry is not an authentic expression of who I am, and is harmful to my health. Thank you for creating a resource to help girls make their graceful exit. Love, Chloe”  (Name changed to protect confidentiality)

 It is because of generous supporters like you that we can care for women like Chloe.

We look forward to sharing more with you at our annual gala!

Registration & Cocktail Hour begins at 6pm
Dinner and Program begins at 7pm
