2016 GCF Gala
February 27, 2016, our 5th Annual GCF Gala at the Beautiful Spanish Trail Country Club in Las Vegas was a fabulous and successful evening!
GCF’s annual gala was an amazing night of generosity, celebration of our achievements and fun. GCF supporters, Board members and volunteers who attended GCF’s “Evening of Global Hope” gala raised more than $35,000 for GCF’s mission with our lively live auction and profitable silent auction and Raffle tickets!
The gala was attended by close to 180 supporters. Our generous supporters gave their time and donations to support GCF’s ongoing missions in Las Vegas and around the world.
We want to thank Glen Lerner and Associates and Wels Fargo private bank for being the Platinum Table sponsor, Safe Money advisors for our Premium table sponsor and NV Energy – our new Silver sponsor!
Our big thanks to Businesses, who donated raffle items, silent auction and live auction items to be part of our success.
The highlight of the night was the introduction of our students from five different schools in attendance and the presentation by two students in addition to video presentation, prepared by students. They all told our audience how this tutoring program is helping them to learn the core subjects in depth by improving their comprehension in the subject matter!
GCF’s supporters and their generosity pushed the fundraising goal past any previously achieved by GCF. This gala the most successful event in GCF’s brief, but eventful, history. The night closed with beautiful performance by a belly dancer- Aradia. She engaged and entertained everybody.
