Let your heart grow three sizes

Everyone’s recipe for a good time may be different, but the key ingredients stay the same. Good food, friends and loved ones, plus great entertainment = a great party.

Hearts of Gold’s Christmas Gala is in its 5th year and has become a community favorite for holiday celebration. This year our “Grinchmas” Gala will transport you to the classic tale of the Grinch Who Stole Christmas, turning Quint Lucrecia into the fun and creative world of Dr. Seuss’ Whoville.

The VIP Champagne Reception takes place from 5:30 – 7 PM, and will include an exclusive wine tasting for VIP guests, free-flowing champagne, the serving of 4 delicious varieties of hors d'oeuvres and a distinguished musical performance from concert pianist, Daniel Brito Acosta, and Symphony Orchestra of Cuenca violinist, Carlos Andrande. 
Our standard ticket starts with a pre-dinner cocktail hour at 6 PM and offers an excellent space for all our guests to mingle with friends. Take in the sights, peruse the silent auction tables, purchase a commemorative holiday portrait from Jack Hardy Photography and spend time with Santa. You’ll also enjoy your Grinchmas cocktail selection - a complimentary treat for all our guests.

The dining room seating will open at 7 PM and you’ll be greeted with holiday signing from the children of Hearts of Gold’s key partner organizations.

A fantastic 3 course holiday dinner will be served, including a festive seafood appetizer, a robust holiday entree featuring both roast chicken and pork medallions in holiday gravies, and a delicious desert à la mode. (Vegetarian menu also available).

The evening’s entertainment is also something to remember. A Live Auction begins as dessert is served, and will feature select, top quality items for guests to win, with prizes such as: a Start-to-Finish Professional Visa Facilitation and Processing Service from GringoVisas, incredible art pieces, the lucky 1 oz St. Gauden’s collectors gold coin, and more.

There will also be an animated dinner theatre play that will tug at your heart, revive the child in us all, and remind you of the true spirit behind the Christmas season.

December 1st is bound to be an incredible evening and your attendance will be the cap-stone to an incredible year of growth for Cuenca’s nonprofit community.

Attire for the Grinchmas Gala is flexible. Put on that nice dress you’ve been dying to wear, or come in your jeans and cowboy boots. The night is a celebration of the Holiday spirit and everyone’s welcome to come as they’d like.

VIP tickets are $75 with only 100 available. Regular tickets are $50. Purchase your tickets online today here: call (07) 405 6197 Monday – Friday from 10 AM-4 PM to purchase your tickets over the phone via credit card. We will also be at the Vegetable Bar on Monday, Nov. 21st from 3 PM – 5 PM
