Sequins, Suits & Sneakers Gala

This is our largest and most entertaining fundraiser! Business leaders, local celebrities and guests come to meet our kids and learn more about the impact we make through the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center! Guests also enjoy dinner and creative mocktails, a silent and live auction and delightful entertainment. For the first time ever, we are hosting the Sequins, Suits and Sneakers Gala at HOME. We hope to see you there!

Join us for the 7th Annual Gala on October 24th, 2019 at 5:30PM for the benefit of the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center. Returning for another amazing gala celebration is our friend Rene Knott, KSDK News Anchor, as emcee for the evening. He will include an in-depth look at what makes our Center so impactful.

Last year, we raised over $500,000 for the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center, with the highest bidders winning tickets to the Presidents Box at the US Open Tennis Tournament. Don’t miss this entertaining and inspiring event! Register below!
