Attend the 40th Annual Anniversary Virtual Gala for Denton County Friends of the Family

It’s time for the Denton County Friends of the Family (DCFOF) Annual Gala and this year, their 40th anniversary, it will be a virtual experience.

Mark your calendar for Thursday, October 8 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. CST to attend the DCFOF Annual Gala. This event is an important fundraiser to support services for those impacted by rape, sexual abuse and domestic violence. Tickets and sponsorships are available now for an evening of food, entertainment and an online auction.

Enjoy a date night at home while supporting a great cause. Your meal and wine will be delivered the day of the event, directly to the address provided when purchasing meal tickets. Enjoy live and pre-recorded entertainment from your comfy chair or snuggled up together on the porch swing. Get your clicking finger ready, because there will be an online auction beginning Monday, October 5 which will close at 11:59 p.m. CST on Friday, October 9. The auction is open to everyone and attendance to the virtual gala is not required to participate.

If you can’t make the gala, there are other ways to help. DCFOF creates a monthly needs list which is linked to Amazon for easy purchasing and delivery. Direct donations are always welcomed.

DCFOF is the sole provider in Denton County of shelter and free outreach services to those who have been affected by relationship violence and/or sexual assault. Community partners invest in the safety, hope, healing and justice for domestic violence and sexual assault victims and survivors in our community. You are essential to DCFOF’s success, and your investment directly saves lives!
