What: 2020 Moment in Time Gala
Thursday, October 8, 2020
6:00 pm to 7:00 pm
The location of your own choosing! We’re going virtual!

Join us as we celebrate our first virtual Moment in Time Gala on October 8th at the location of your choice, because we are going virtual!

Guests will enjoy a fun evening of live and silent auctions, raffles, and much more!

Our Guest Speaker will be The Rt. Rev. Deon Johnson, who was elected by the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri as our eleventh bishop on 11/23/19 and ordained on 06/13/20. He is the first black, first openly gay, and first immigrant to lead our diocese. He has deep experience in social justice issues and recently as bishop, he authored an anti-racism covenant! We are excited to have Bishop Deon as our speaker!

Tickets are $25 per gala admission OR $50 per VIP gala admission including a pre-Gala experience. Reservations may be made by accessing our event website using the following link –
