2017 Gala News

On Saturday, April 29, Landfall Foundation guests were whisked away for an elegant evening in Palm Beach. Co-chaired by Kristen Harmon and Lynn Hildreth, this year's Palm Beach Grand themed gala featured the warm and inviting colors of sunshine and tropical breezes typical of Southern Florida. The spectacular, sold-out evening featured signature cocktails, haute cuisine, and live performances. Auctioneer Ken Beasley led a live auction featuring many amazing items. Later in the evening attendees danced the night away to the music of Empty Pocket, whose music spans many styles and eras.

The gala is the foundation's signature annual event and largest fundraiser, raising approximately 70% of the foundation's net revenue which is awarded to non-profit agencies in the greater Wilmington area through the foundation's Grants Program.

Obtaining Sponsorships is the single most important aspect of a successful year in giving. By far, the majority of annual giving by the Landfall Foundation comes from donations made by our generous sponsors.
