"I wish I could find the right words to express my gratitude for how [Rainbow Village has] impacted my family's life; however, I don't think the words exist," Bianca, young mother of three and Rainbow Village graduate. "Every time I think of it, tears well up in my eyes. [Rainbow Village] provided us with a beautiful, spacious place to live. [They] educated me on life skills. [They] taught me to budget, to plan and to be as prepared as possible. [They] gave my children a safe place to go after school and educated them, not just on academics, but also character."
During last year's Gala, Rainbow Village and its supporters raised $275,000 to help the Gwinnett County-based nonprofit meet the financial demands of providing housing and services to continue to transform the lives of homeless families. Hopes are high that even greater numbers will be achieved this year. This year's black-tie optional event will include a seated dinner, wine, games and a raffle, as well as live and silent auctions. Items featured in this year's live and silent auctions include Superbowl tickets + hotel accommodations, a week's stay at Villa on Lake Burton, Rothschild Wine, and two Roundtrip Delta Airline Tickets, just to name a few. As in year's past, a very special Family Art project – created by one or more members of the Rainbow Village family – will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
"This is my first year attending the We Are Family Gala in my new role as Rainbow Village CEO," explained Melanie Conner. "I'm excited to see it all come together. I understand from members of our staff who have been here for years that it's a truly transformative event – touching the lives of not only our Rainbow Village families, but also the lives of everyone in attendance. They say you can actually FEEL a difference being made and for me – that's everything!"
Tickets to the Rainbow Village We Are Family Gala 2018 are $175/person and can be purchased online on the Events Page at www.rainbowvillage.org (https://rainbowvillage.org/
