What a great night of exploring travel destinations, celebration, and fundraising! 

Thank you for accompanying us on the journey, Thursday, November 3rd, for A First Class Escape – the 18th Annual Comfort & Joy Gala, presented by TD.


On behalf of The Darling Home for Kids and the 2016 Gala Committee, please accept our sincerest thanks to all who attended and generously supported the event.  We are delighted to announce that as a result of your collective outstanding generosity and support, our event was a great success and raised $140,000 for the Home!  As our largest signature fundraising event of the year, the Comfort & Joy Gala is vital to the sustainability of The Darling Home for Kids.  For 18 years it has been the cornerstone upon which the Home was built and continues to operate.  To date, it has generated over $1.6 million in funds which allows us to continue providing compassionate and loving care to medically fragile children and much-needed support to their families.


Thank you again for your contributions and allowing The Darling Home for Kids to continue achieving our vision of being an oasis of comfort and joy for the children and families we serve.
