Hillsides Annual Gala is the largest fundraiser of the year for our charity, raising more than $450,000 to help support the work we do.

Brazil conjures up images of tropical beaches, lush rainforests, colorful celebrations, and exotic dances like the samba and Bossa Nova.    

But this beautiful, vibrant country is even more.  Brazil is one of the most diverse nations in the world, the people are renowned for their life-affirming attitude despite adversity, and throughout history, it has served as a safe harbor for those facing persecution. 

At its heart, Brazil is accepting, understanding, and resilient.

So, too, at Hillsides’ heart, lies our commitment to helping children and families from all backgrounds through any challenge.  We heal children from trauma and give them a place of safety and permanency.  

This year’s gala theme, the Heart of Brazil, reflects the best that we, and this inspirational country, have to offer, which is love, trust, joy, and hope.  

The gala will be held on February 23, 2019 at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena.  This event is our largest fundraiser of the year, and we invite you to join us.  Together, our hearts will beat as one for the children.  

Tickets are $300. There are many opportunities to sponsor the event. Consider becoming a sponsor and you'll receive the benefits listed. To learn more, contact please contact Bernie Gore, special events manager, at 323.543.2800, ext. 12253 or bgore@hillsides.org.
