A Beautiful Evening of Glamour and Goodwill!

Kakes for Kids

October 11th, 2014 - What a beautiful, beautiful evening we shared at the His House Children’s Home Imagine Gala!  We are so humbled and moved by the generosity of our His House family who made this evening possible.  We are especially grateful to our honorary hosts, Jay & Jessica Leyva, as well as our sponsors, production team, volunteers and all who made this great celebration a success.

Over 520 guests enjoyed the wonderful evening – all brought together by their love and concern for children who need a safe, loving home and the hope of a brighter future. Alvaro, a former His House resident, gave a very moving speech that touched the hearts of all who were present:

When I arrived at His House, I was received with love and open arms and immediately accepted as part of the family.  Everyone I met was focused on my well-being and care.  I never in my life had been surrounded by so many caring and loving strangers.”

We appreciate the kind participation of Master of Ceremony Ambrosio Hernandez.  Among our distinguished guests were State Senator Rene Garcia, Miami Congressional Candidate Carlos Curbelo, the Honorable Monica Gordo and Congressman Joe Garcia. We are so grateful for their faithful support.

One of the many highlights of the evening was the participation of artist Maria Elena Elvira, better known as “Manena” who was recently selected as the featured artist for Governor Rick Scott’s Hispanic Heritage Month celebration.  During the event she created a beautiful signature piece “Live” which was later sold during the “live” auction.

We are happy to announce that, through the support of so many, we were able to exceed our goal by raising over $400,000 to support the work of His House!  We are so grateful to everyone for their generosity.

The evening was a very fitting way to celebrate our 25 years of service to abused, neglected and abandoned children of South Florida.  Thank you to all who were a part of it!

“It is always a pleasure to spend time with my friends at His House, their hard work and dedication is a true testament to all.”- Senator Rene Garcia
