The Hearts and Hands Gala presented by The Coca-Cola Company is our signature black-tie, seated dinner event featuring silent and live auctions. This year’s event was held on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at FLOURISH. This year’s Gala raised over $550,000 for our two Atlanta Houses.

Since 2009 this event has raised more than $3 million and has featured celebrity appearances by Ryan Seacrest, Gavin DeGraw, Natasha Bedingfield, Jeff Foxworthy, NEEDTOBREATHE, Tripp & Tyler, and most recently The Tyrone Smith Revue.
