Please join us this September for The party that builds homes and hope.



We are super excited to return this September 30th with an in-person “Building Dreams Gala“. 

When: Thursday, September 30th from 6:00 PM
Where: Glen Magna Farms

We will be offering a cocktail and canapé hour, outdoors in the Glen Magna Farm gardens where visitors will get to mingle, without an extended sit-down dinner. This will be followed by a seated dessert and auction where you will be able to bid on your favorite one-of-a-kind items.

Many thanks to our lead sponsor, Watts for supporting us again this year.

If you wish to sponsor the Building Dreams Gala or support us through providing an auction item, please contact us by email at
