Please join The Children’s Place in advancing our mission by generously participating in our annual fundraiser. Our mission is “To offer hope and healing to children and families impacted by abuse and neglect through a coordinated community response.”


The work we do is at times very sad and heartbreaking. However, just knowing that we, as a community, make a difference in the lives of children, keeps us motivated and mission-focused.  In the fiscal year 2019, we have seen 367 child victims of abuse. This is the highest number of children we have ever seen in any prior year; and unfortunately, we do not see this number declining. As we approach another year in operations, your support is needed even more.

On Saturday, April 4, 2020, we will hold our 21st  Annual Gala Fundraiser.  This year’s event will be held at the Curtis D. Menard Memorial Sports Center in Wasilla! The Gala is a time for celebration and philanthropy with more than 300 guests!  This year’s Gala includes dinner, entertainment, auctions and a chance to spend the evening with the best people in the world who give generously to support our mission. In addition to the promised fun and games, our Gala gives you, our donors, a low-cost opportunity to advertise and be recognized with the top community leaders. The Gala is a very anticipated event that has been supported by this community for 20+ years - If you have never attended before, this is the one fundraiser you do not want to miss!


Please consider underwriting the event as one of the main sponsors or donating an auction item that makes a statement about your business. A thoughtful silent auction gift, typically ranging between $50-$450 retail value, maximizes advertisement potential. A live auction gift, typically with a retail value of more than $500, offers an advertising opportunity in the spotlight during the Gala. In appreciation of your donation and with your permission, you will be identified in the Gala 2020 program as well as on our website and Facebook page.


We have commitment forms for you to download and print.

Please fill out the form and return it to us as soon as possible to ensure your accurate recognition. 

We sincerely appreciate your generosity and continued support.
