F.C. Shelter’s Gala Still Has Tickets Available

Tickets are still on sale for the Falls Church Homeless Shelter’s winter fundraising gala — “Little City, Big Heart” — on Feb. 22 at the State Theatre (220 N. Washington St., Falls Church) and will run from 6:30 – 10:30 p.m.

The event will feature live jazz by Modell, Soderstrom & James, heavy appetizers and dessert, a silent auction and a raffle. Festive, cocktail attire is encouraged.

Tickets are $75 per person and can be purchased online at fcshelter.org.

This is the shelter’s first major fundraiser in four years.

This year’s event will honor two generous business and community partners: Lazy Mike’s Delicatessen and the Columbia Baptist Church.

Those interested in donating auction items should contact board member John Krotzer at jkrotzer@fcshelter.org. To become a business or individual sponsor, contact gala@fcshelter.org.

All proceeds support The Friends of Falls Church Homeless Shelter, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit in the City of Falls Church. The shelter provides adults experiencing homelessness with meals and warm beds from Nov. 15 – March 31, plus counseling and housing placement services designed to end the cycle of homelessness.
