Inspiring Journeys Virtual Event
Friday, October 29th | Virtual Event
6:30pm Pre-Show | 7:00pm Live Program
The Inspiring Journeys Gala is Boyer’s annual semi-formal fundraising dinner and auction. The hallmark of the event is an elegant party, including a cocktail reception, entertainment, silent auctions and an exclusive live auction. Due to the ever-evolving COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to once again host a virtual event so that our guests may safely enjoy Boyer’s marquee annual event from the comfort of home!
We are thrilled to again partner with Kaspar’s, who will be offering options for catered meal delivery and at-home service for you and your guests.
Our 500+ guests include community leaders, patrons of Boyer Children’s Clinic, Boyer families, and corporate executives from local and national companies.
We are very proud to have Heather & Will Krause and Gloria & Andrew Wang Shawber as our 2021 Auction Co-Chairs! The Wang Shawbers are an alumni family and have been wonderful champions for Boyer, and the Krauses are incredible community supporters and volunteers. Gloria also serves on our Board of Directors, and Heather on our Advisory Council. We appreciate both families’ longtime leadership within our organization!
The Inspiring Journeys Gala has helped improve the lives of countless families since it began in 2002. Thanks to the tremendous partnership of our guests, sponsors, donors, and volunteers, we have steadfastly upheld our mission of serving all families who need us, regardless of financial circumstances.
We are incredibly proud of the impact we have made over the years, but there is still more work to be done. Every year, more families seek support for their child with developmental disabilities/delays. Every year, more families rely on Boyer’s unique, highly specialized care. Every year, the need grows more urgent.
Due to the significant challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, Boyer is committed to finding new, innovative ways to deliver care to the children and families who need us. We have worked to ensure that all families have equitable access to services, that our programs evolve to meet the needs of our community, and that the quality of care continues to be at the level our families have come to expect.
The need to join together in support of Boyer’s life-changing work has never been greater. By participating in this year’s Inspiring Journeys event, you will help Boyer’s staff respond to our families’ rapidly evolving needs. You will help ensure that families receive vital care during this most critical time of their child’s brain development. You will help alleviate anxiety our families might have around accessing care. You will help Boyer families continue to thrive.
