2019 Gala and Auction

Our 25th Annual Gala and Auction, held on Saturday, Sept. 21, was a blast! We had 180 guests who enjoyed delicious cocktails and appetizers followed by a fantastic three-course meal featuring a surf and turf main course. We also had two great live bands – Laissez Foure, a bass and guitar duo that played during cocktail hour in the Bistro, and Cognac Jazz, which provided swinging jazz tunes during dinner. Prior to dinner, our guest had the chance to participate in a very lively auction.

The best part of the entire evening was witnessing the tremendous support for Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation! The Gala and Auction is NMCGRF’s signature fundraiser – funds raised during this event allow NMCGRF to fulfill its mission of supporting the residents of Vinson Hall Retirement Community. During this year’s Gala and Auction, we raised more than $75,000. The auction brought in $10,000 in donations. Many thanks to all who attended the Gala, to our sponsors, and to our generous auction donors!
