Free to Soar Gala Details

EVENT UPDATE: Due to the phenomenal response of our incredible supporters,

Please hurry and reserve your table for the Luau by the Lake as those tables are selling quickly!

The Luau by the Lake is a new addition to this year’s event allowing us to accommodate more guests and showcase tropically-themed, ultra-accessible™ Morgan’s Inspiration Island. You will enjoy amazing Hawaiian cuisine, signature drinks and hors d’oeuvres right in the middle of this beautiful, new splash park. The two locations will be linked by giant LED screens with program components taking place in both areas so emcees, speakers and audiences can interact. It promises to be an incredibly entertaining night that you won’t want to miss!
