50th Anniversary Voices From the Heart Gala

Please join us for the Center’s 50th Anniversary Voices From the Heart Gala on Thursday September 27, 2018!

September 27, 2018 will be an historic evening, as we celebrate the Franciscan Center’s 50th anniversary of service to the Baltimore community — and the good people of Baltimore who have given so generously of their time, talent and resources to make this milestone possible!

The evening will feature cocktails, dinner, dancing and auctions, as well as the voices and musical stylings of fabulous area performers! In addition, we will honor Ryan Yu and Margaret Chao of Daly Computers and McCormick and Company for demonstrating extraordinary compassion and corporate citizenship in the spirit of Saints Francis and Clare. Proceeds will benefit the work and mission of the Franciscan Center, helping to provide food, clothing, basic computer skills training, job readiness programs and a broad array of emergency financial assistance to many as 700 men, women and children daily — families and individuals who are among our most vulnerable neighbors.

Please join us for this fun and festive evening,and help us make history on September 27th!
