The Annual Gala celebrates the incredible work that has been done in the community to bring dignity and hope to youth in foster care, and to raise funds to ensure this important work continues. Since 2013, Comfort Cases has distributed over 140,000 Comfort Cases and Comfort XL duffel bags to children in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. With 700 children entering foster care every day, and over 430,000 currently in care, they must keep going. www.comfortcases.org
