The Spring Gala is held in June at various locations. Whether the event is a black-tie affair, a Hawaiian luau, or even Casino Royale-themed, the original spirit of this longtime gathering is still alive and well, and everyone continues to “help some folks and have some fun!”.

The first-ever gala was held in 2000 at co-founder Jim Kyger’s home.  Jim and his family opened their home to 35 guests, family and friends with the simple theme of “let’s have some fun and help some folks out.”  Since then, the event has grown to include hundreds of guests, including statesmen, professional athletes and entertainers, as well as great “local characters” who still show up to “bust the fun meter” each June.
