Advocates 5th Annual Gala: The Game of Life


You’re Invited!

Advocates 5th Annual Gala is going virtual – again! We will hold our big, exciting Gala online on November 18*. Life is a journey and while we may be on different paths, we all want the same thing: to live a happy and healthy life with those you care about.

Virtual Gala
Thursday, November 18, 2021 | 4:00-5:00 pm

Virtual Sponsor Thank You Event*
Early 2022 | Details coming soon…

*Due to the uncertainty surrounding the Delta variant of the Coronavirus, our originally planned in-person Sponsor Thank You Reception in Boston has been canceled as the health and safety of our community is our number one priority. Instead we will plan some fun virtual, at-home events during early 2022. Examples of past virtual at-home events include cheese tasting, souffle baking, and flower arranging. Exact details will be announced when available. Thank you for understanding.

If you purchased a ticket/sponsorship and have not yet received an email with access to the event, please email

All funds raised through the Gala directly help more than 30,000 children and adults with autism, brain injuries, intellectual/developmental disabilities, or mental health challenges at Advocates.
