Why Co-host?

By hosting the gala together, Simply the Basics and Project Homeless Connect are able to save funds by sharing the cost of the event and save time by sharing the planning. These two organizations believe in program collaboration, so it is fitting that we would collaborate in hosting an event as well!

Are tickets and donations tax deductible?

Yes! Because of the generous support of sponsors, we are able to cover the cost of the event. As nonprofit organizations, your donations made to register and at the event will benefit our programs directly and are tax deductible (all tax deduction letters will be mailed following the event).
