Hillcrest Platte County’s  Annual Gala & Auction

Community of Stars, 2021 Hillcrest Platte County Gala logo

Hillcrest Platte County puts the “fun” in fundraising! HPC’s annual gala & auction is the organization’s largest fundraiser of the year. The gala is typically held in person and features silent and live auctions, a candy bar raffle, inspiring stories from HPC graduates, a delicious dinner &  drinks, and the chance to come together with others passionate about the mission.

Join Us for our 2021 Online Gala & Auction!

Plan now to join us for our 2021 online Gala, to be held on Saturday, October 2nd. Due to COVID concerns, we will host our event online, with plans to come together in person next year! Our evening will feature heartwarming stories of HPC graduate successes, follow-up with past graduates, “Parties with a Purpose,” and a great selection of silent auction items!

Online Gala & Silent Auction

Available to view October 1st at 9 am. Link to see and bid on items is here.

Donate an Auction Item

Our gala committee is working diligently to secure items for the silent auction. Will you consider contributing to this effort? Examples of successful gala items include vacation packages, sports memorabilia, hotels and restaurant gift cards, spa packages, gift baskets, and more. Auction item donations should be valued at $50 or more and delivered or picked up by September 6.

The proceeds from the sale of all items will directly benefit the families and youth we serve, helping them achieve their dream of overcoming homelessness and regaining self-sufficiency.

Party with a Purpose

Party with a Purpose Hillcrest Platte County Gala

Are you passionate about the Hillcrest Platte County mission and ready to share that passion with others? Join HPC for our annual “Community of Stars” Gala & Silent Auction on Saturday, October 2nd. Our event is online this year, and our 15-minute video will be available for viewing on Friday, October 1st. Would you consider hosting a “Party with a Purpose?”

Hosting a “Party with a Purpose” is a valuable way for HPC supporters to introduce our mission to others and help us meet our goal of $150,000 raised during our HPC Gala & Silent Auction on October 2nd. 

You don’t have to have friends with “deep pockets” to host a party! Hosting a party for Hillcrest Platte County can be as simple or as elegant as you like. Our hope is that you’ll help us recruit some new advocates to the HPC mission and raise some funds along the way.

Shape your party in a way that’s fun for you and your guests- Here are some ideas:

  • Wine and cheese party
  • Casual potluck
  • Dessert tasting
  • Tea Party
  • Cooking class
  • Garden party
  • Arts and Crafts night
  • Game night
  • Breakfast or Brunch (who says a party is only in the evening?)
