50 Years of Amazing Support!


The Back to School Clothing Drive Golden Masquerade Gala celebrates 50 years of providing new school uniforms, backpacks and school supplies to children in need. From 1967-2017, we have clothed over 535,000 students, given out 2.1 million school uniforms and outfits, and along the way created one of the most entrepreneurial nonprofit operations in the Valley. As a sponsor you will help break down barriers to early childhood school success!
