Held at the Camarillo Ranch House, the Harvest of Lights Dinner and Live Auction was a great success because of our amazing board members, faithful donors, generous foundation partners, and new friends! A special thanks to Gene Haas Foundation, Oxnard Monday Club, Alliance Advisory & Securities, Catanese and Wells Law Corporation, and Build D3 Design and Development. Founder and CEO Sam Gallucci reemphasized the Gabriel’s House mission to end the cycle of homelessness—one woman and child at a time. Director Tammy Duff interviewed residents Sandra and Kameron who shared their journey and how Christ has been at the heart of their change and growth. The live auction offered excitement with bidding on luxury vacation homes, a sunset flight from Camarillo Airport, a private gourmet dinner prepared by Sam and Toni Gallucci, and e-bikes from Trek Bicycles Ventura. We reached out goal of raising $100,000 to bring increasing help and hope to homeless women and children.
At the Gabriel’s House Christmas Party on December 12, residents, staff, and special guests gathered to celebrate the birth of Christ. There were delicious treats, hot cocoa, Christmas music, and a skit presented by the a few of the adults and most of the children of Gabriel’s House. Two of our newest Gabriel’s Guardians donors presented Living Stones (stones with their favorite Bible verse) at the cross, symbolizing their commitment to stand with the women and children of Gabriel’s House. All of us at Gabriel’s House wish you a Merry Christmas!
