Friendship Shelter Gala - Back In Our Backyard
Share the love

The Friendship Shelter Gala is a critical part of our annual fundraising effort, and the funds raised are used to work toward ending homelessness for the most vulnerable men and women in our community. We rely on amazing volunteers to help make this evening a success and we hope you'll be able to join us this year.

 The event will be held on Saturday, October 28th at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point. The theme is Back In Our Backyard, and will take place on the gorgeous lawn overlooking the Dana Point Harbor. For more information about the event, including photos from last year, please visit

We're looking for volunteers to help throughout the evening, including with:

  • Registration & checking guests in as they arrive
  • Silent auction check-out 
  • Opportunity drawing ticket sales
  • Donation collection

There will be a volunteer training and orientation directly before the event begins, and we will provide dinner and complimentary valet parking for all volunteers.
