Childhelp Drive the Dream Gala “A Night of Wonderment” will take place on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at the Arizona Biltmore. The reception will begin at 6:00 p.m. followed by dinner, live entertainment and dancing.

“We are blessed to have these amazing women as part of the Childhelp Drive the Dream Gala,” said Sara O’Meara, co-founder, CEO and chairwoman of the board for Childhelp. “Each has insurmountable passion, knowledge and experience with charity events and Yvonne and I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for agreeing to be our Dream Team!”

In our nation, an average of five children die each day as a result of abuse or neglect and that is five too many. A report of child abuse is made every 10 seconds and nearly 3.3 million reports of child abuse are made annually. Childhelp’s programs work to combat these issues daily.

The Childhelp Drive the Dream Gala is the nonprofit’s largest annual fundraiser benefiting Childhelp’s programs and services in Arizona. For tickets or sponsorship information, contact Natalie Hood at (480) 922-8212 or
