Champions Gala

As a supporter of inclusion and the National Inclusion Project, we invite you to join us at the 14th Annual Champions Gala – A Celebration of Friendship. Based on the great success we had on our new format and structure last year, we have kept some of the most enjoyed events, changed some to be even more exciting and even added one! You can expect a full weekend of fun, friendship, inspiration and singing.

As always, at the Champions Gala, attendees will hear from inspiring Champions of Inclusion, our Executive Director about the State of the Project, and many more exciting guests. More details will be released as they are available.
