TPRF Annual Gala

July 20, the day of the TPRF Annual Gala Benefit for this year, was a resounding success in every way, and hundreds of people made it so. The dinner sold out over two weeks ahead of time, both an exciting situation and a challenge. Sponsorship continued to be active even after the event was over. And over 80 volunteers worked, many for weeks ahead of time, to make sure the event was fun, inspiring, and productive.

Over $225,000 net was raised for TPRF’s signature programs. Please visit to read a new letter from TPRF president Daya Rawat, watch slideshows shown at the occasion, and learn further details about the event and its sponsors.
