For the Love of a Child Gala 2024: A Night of Elegance, Unity, and Giving Back

In a spectacular display of compassion and commitment, Family Advocates hosted its second annual ‘For the Love of a Child’ Gala on February 9, 2024, at the enchanting Chateau des Fleurs in Eagle, Idaho. Following the resounding success of our inaugural event last year, this year’s gala surpassed all expectations, proving once again that our community stands united for the well-being of our children and families.

The venue was transformed into a captivating scene, adorned with the rich and regal colors of black, gold, and red. Shimmering crystal chandeliers cast a warm glow, setting the stage for a night to remember. As guests arrived, their attire in these bold hues added an extra touch of elegance to the event, symbolizing the collective commitment to the cause.

The evening kicked off with a warm welcome as guests perused the silent auction tables filled with exciting items. The atmosphere was filled with the mesmerizing sounds of the Midnight Jazz Cats, the featured band for the night, creating the perfect ambiance for a night of celebration and philanthropy. The ballroom came alive during dinner and the live auction, with paddles raising in enthusiastic support of the adventures generously gifted by our passionate donors. It was more than just bidding; it was a communal effort to support and ensure the safety and well-being of the children and families we serve.
