Celebrate 60 Years of Hope with Cross-Lines!

For six decades, Cross-Lines has provided food to those who are hungry, a path to housing for those who are homeless, and hope to those who are hopeless.

This year at Gala for Hope, we will be celebrating 60 years as an organization AND raising vital funds to support our programs! Our event will bring together sponsors, supporters, volunteers, staff, and community members to celebrate all the amazing work Cross-Lines does every day.

Guests will enjoy a cocktail hour, silent auction, raffles and games, a delicious plated dinner, exciting LIVE auction, and inspiring stories from those we've served. We hope you'll join us at the beautiful View at Briarcliff for an evening of celebration and support. Our work is only possible because of YOU!

Theme of the Event: Diamond Ball

It's our diamond anniversary, so we'll be celebrating all things sparkly! Please feel free to incorporate this theme into your evening attire.
