Our 4th annual spring gala, "Stepping Out with the Valley Stars," will be held on April 7, 2018 at Blue Ocean Music Hall in Salisbury, MA. This unique event features dynamic and well-known local people (celebrities, if you will), paired with professional dancers.
Guests will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite couple, bid on live and silent auction items, enjoy a delicious plated dinner and watch professional dance performances, including numbers performed by Burju and Victor Perez, world-renowned salsa dancers.
The event also features local “celebrity” judges and the opportunity for guests to get out on the dance floor themselves!
Our last three galas SOLD OUT weeks prior to the event. We imagine the same tremendous response this year.
Stepping Out with the Valley Stars brings together 350 of the Merrimack Valley’s most influential people who care deeply about finding a solution to homelessness. Money raised through this event will have a tremendous impact on the lives of those we serve.
