Join The Annual Cradles to Crayons Un-Gala®

The Un-Gala is our signature fundraiser in support of Gear Up for Winter, an initiative that supplies 149,000 warm items to local children in Massachusetts. We are thrilled to announce that Un-Gala will be in-person at Cradles to Crayons at The Giving Factory® located at 281 Newtonville Avenue, Newton, MA 02460.

We will be hosting four in-person opportunities to participate with a limited capacity of 200 volunteers per shift. This year marks our 20th Anniversary, and adults and children of all ages are welcome to help us celebrate this special milestone. No matter when you volunteer, it will be a fun and impactful hands-on service event that features, kid-friendly activities and entertainment, light fare, and an impact presentation.
