Tickets on sale for upcoming GLAM gala to help children in foster care

The 2019 G.L.A.M Gala is being held at the new Valley Park Conference and Event Center in Hurricane, W.Va., from 6:30–11:30 p.m. on Friday, May 17.

HURRICANE — GLAM Gala (formerly known as MOM Prom) is an annual charity event hosted by MOMS Club of Teays Valley.

GLAM stands for Generous Ladies on A Mission. The gala brings together GLAMorous women who are 21 and older for a ladies' night out combining both fun with philanthropy. The formal event features dancing, drinks, and hors d'oeuvres.

Attendees will have several chances to participate in raffles and a silent auction to win prizes including a 50/50 cash raffle, park hopper Disney World tickets, spa packages and more.

The MOMS Club selected Mission West Virginia as the beneficiary of its 2019 gala with all net proceeds being donated to the organization. Mission West Virginia changes the lives of youth and families. They promote positive futures by recruiting foster families, providing life skills education and creating community connections. Mission WV believes that all children are adoptable and deserving of a permanent, loving family.

To date, the event has raised more than $20,000. Previously, it has benefited children's programs at Putnam County Libraries (2018), Lily's Place, which provides medical care to infants suffering from prenatal drug exposure (2017), and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (2016). This year all proceeds from the event will go towards empowering youth in foster and relative/kinship care by providing luggage, personal care items, funding of care items for youth, and through special celebrations for birthdays.
