Raphael House is thrilled to invite you to our Many Homes, Many Hearts online Gala on Saturday, September 12th, 2020!
While nothing would make us happier than to see you in person as we originally planned, the past few months have shown us all how the Many Homes and Many Hearts of our community can virtually join together to create meaningful impact at Raphael House and for families experiencing homelessness and poverty.
So put on your fabulous gown, a dashing suit, or comfy PJs to celebrate a dazzling evening filled with live and pre-recorded entertainment, talented performers, online auctions, fund-a-need, and inspiring stories from Raphael House! We know you’ll look mah-velous!
Presenting Our Dazzling Host & Performers
Our Vibrant Emcee

The Best of Jazz & Cabaret
Talented jazz singer Amanda King will delight us with a radiating performance showcasing her beautiful voice. Possessing a smoothness of voice and surety of style, she has been hailed by New York Times critic Stephen Holden as one of the nightclub world’s “exceptional rising talents.” Combining the best of the jazz and cabaret worlds by focusing on the words, the music, and the swing, Amanda masterfully interprets the music she adores and performs.
The Ultimate House Party
DJ Umami will rock the turntables and close the night out with a lively, energetic dance party that is sure to get you and your family moving. In 2012, she became a rotating DJ for The Golden State Warriors and is known to hype up fans before and after games. A crowd-reading music aficionado both versatile and professional, sought-after DJ Umami has an eclectic taste and range when she plays, but her love for Hip Hop and R&B is the foundation in her sets.
