Join us for the 2020 Inspire Gala, a Mardi Gras Masquerade, on Saturday February 22, from 6:00 to 10:00 pm, at the beautiful Floridan Palace Hotel in Tampa.

This fabulous evening is filled with more than dinner, dancing and entertainment – it’s filled with hope as we raise critical funds to support kids and families served by Children’s Home Society of Florida.

When you join us for the Inspire Gala, you become part of an incredible movement led by Children’s Home Society of Florida: to end the need for foster care as we know it. Together, we will help more children grow up in safe, strong families.

Funds raised through the Inspire Gala allow us to meet families at the crossroads of their struggles and successes to empower them to overcome challenges before they turn into crises. With your support, we deliver a “cradle to career” approach — meeting kids and families with the right solutions at the right time, no matter where they are in life.

The Inspire Gala is a black-tie event that you don’t want to miss! Join us for a night of dinner, dancing, live music, open bar, silent auctions, and raffles. The Inspire Gala brings together 300 community leaders and influencers to support the children and families in our community and we hope you can join us!
