The Ties, Tiaras, & Tennis Shoes Charity Gala

The TW Foundation's Ties, Tiaras, & Tennis Shoes Gala Ball will be held at the Sheraton Riverwalk in Tampa, FL on Saturday, November 9th!

This is one of our favorite nights of the year as this is our major fundraising opportunity for the following year ahead to help develop and implement our many programs into the communities nationwide, which we provide at no cost. This event will also assist us to further the development of future initiatives and community engagements.

Our organization is dedicated to providing hope and help for those struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, PTSD, bi-polar disorder, self-injury, and suicide. The primary focus groups are youth & teensveterans & active duty soldiers, and first responders.  We exist to encourage, inform, inspire and invest directly into lives, treatment, &  recovery. 

This fun evening is themed as a formal event in which the guests try to wear amazing, fun, or bright ties, beautiful or fun tiaras, and most importantly... amazing tennis shoes with their formal wear. The evening will include a VIP cocktail party where guests will be able to meet & greet with our celebrity guests. The main event will offer a three-course dinner with drinks, special guests, inspirational speakers, a fundraising silent auction, dancing and entertainment (VIP tickets are additional cost).
