Virtual event with in-person or at-home volunteer options.

The annual Un-Gala® is our signature fundraiser in support of our Gear Up for Winter initiative, which supplies warm winter gear to thousands of local children in Massachusetts. This year, we are thrilled to announce that Un-Gala will be a virtual event with in-person or at-home volunteer options. You can choose where you feel most comfortable volunteering: at home or at Cradles to Crayons. No matter where you volunteer, it will be a fun and impactful hands-on service event for volunteers of all ages.

Three Un-Gala volunteer opportunities will occur on Saturday, December 4, 2021. The first two will be in-person volunteering at Cradles to Crayons and the third will be at-home volunteering. And make sure you tune in to the main event at 4:00 p.m. for a family-friendly and engaging virtual program. Please review the schedule below.

  • 10:00 a.m – 12:00 p.m.: Un-Gala Volunteer Opportunity #1 (at Cradles to Crayons)
