Save the Date: NPI’s next Spring Fundraising Gala will be held on Friday, April 26th, 2019

As long­time sup­port­ers know, each year, in the mid­dle of spring, we hold a major event to thank our sup­port­ers and raise mon­ey to sup­port our work. It takes the com­bined strength of our board, staff, and con­trib­u­tors to orga­nize, but it’s always been an extreme­ly suc­cess­ful event, and we’re con­fi­dent it will con­tin­ue to be.

Ear­ly-bird tick­ets for the gala will go on sale start­ing Jan­u­ary 7th and speak­ers will be announced begin­ning a few weeks after that, along with fur­ther details.

For now, we invite you to save the date on your cal­en­dar and plan to join us for our eleventh gala. We have many excit­ing sur­pris­es we’re work­ing on and look for­ward to shar­ing a won­der­ful evening with you next spring.
