For almost 10 years, our Gobble & Give family fundraiser has raised more than $300,000 to support Raphael House’s residential shelter, academic enrichment, Bridge, and children’s programs. All Gobble & Give proceeds directly help homeless families staying at Raphael House gain the resources they need to achieve stable housing and financial independence.
This year, our fundraising goal for Gobble & Give is $60,000, allowing us to provide nutritious meals, tutoring and housing services, and family wellness support to homeless and at-risk families. We celebrate our fundraising success on Saturday, November 3 at our Gobble & Give family festival, and your sponsorship gives your family entry to enjoy fun activities, delicious food, lively entertainment, and more. We look forward to seeing you there!
