Cradles to Crayons’ Annual Un-Gala is a special holiday tradition that highlights our Gear Up for Winter initiative in a festive day of hands-on service. Families with children and corporate representatives work side by side during this unique celebration that combines philanthropy with volunteer engagement on behalf of 42,500 children in need of coats, hats, and other warm essentials. The event features mascots from your favorite Boston sports teams, kid-friendly activities and entertainment, a special volunteer shift, a delicious light meal, and an impact presentation.
