Our annual Gear Up for Winter Un-Gala will look a little different this year, but we’re thrilled to return to live, in-person Family Day and Purple Party events and hope you will join us!
Un-Gala: Family Day
Saturday, November 13
10:00 am – 12:00 noon
This fun-filled morning of philanthropy & hands-on service has become a pre-holiday tradition for many, offering parents & children a chance to come together in the spirit of giving to help thousands of kids get the winter essentials they need.
After volunteering, we’ll socialize outside with snacks and tailgate-style activities!
Both Un-Gala events will be held at the
Cradles to Crayons Giving Factory

Winter this year is forecast to be brutally cold and snowy.
Long pants & shirts that fit, warm sweaters & hoodies, socks without holes, winter coats, hats & gloves, are vital to the health and well-being of every child . . . but for families struggling to make ends meet, providing these necessities for their growing children can be out of reach.
Our Gear Up for Winter initiative will supply 35,000 local children with cold weather essentials, in an effort to protect kids from the dangerous elements outside and help them stay warm inside, too.
Join us in keeping kids warm!
Corporate supporters of Gear Up for Winter receive customized benefits including
Un-Gala participation or other employee engagement options (live or virtual), plus recognition on social media, C2C website & during Un-Gala events.
Many thanks to these generous organizations:
