You’ll also get the chance to win some of the most sought after Northwest brands and adventures through our auction.

Why THIS Gala matters
We have big dreams this year. Through the Gala, you’ll be venturing on a journey with us over the next year to not just impact people world-wide who are experiencing poverty, but help us scale up our impact with integrity, transparency, and passion.
When you support the Gala you are fueling our operations behind the scenes. Throughout the year 100% of donations go directly to our work around the world, so we raise our operating costs separately. The Gala is the main way for donors like you to invest in our movement’s ability to grow well and sustainably.
So this year let’s celebrate the amazing work we’ve done together, and set a vision for the future of what we can do next to promote global justice and empowerment.
Whether you are a seasoned supporter, or just starting to learn about our work, we invite you to join ODW’s core community at the 8th Annual One Day’s Wages Gala!
