Please join us for our very first virtual Rise & Fly Gala! For more than 20 years, Roots & Wings has been providing aged-out foster youth with housing, caring connections to supportive adults, counseling to work through the struggles of their past, and a focus on education to get better jobs to become truly, self-sufficient. By joining us in this special event you’ll hear directly from our clients as they share their stories of how Roots & Wings is helping them to beat the odds and make strides toward their true potential.

*Including your cell phone number in the box located above will allow Roots and Wings to provide you with text message updates regarding the event as well as the status of auction items and the bidding process. Your phone number will not be sold, traded, or shared outside of Roots and Wings and their event contractors. Standard text messaging rates apply based on your calling plan.
