The Kristi House Celebration of Light Gala
February 2, 2019


Kristi House’s signature annual event will be The Kristi House Celebration of Light Gala. It will be held at Four Seasons Miami on Saturday, February 2, 2019.

We have cause to celebrate! This past year has brought us to a critical juncture in the community consciousness where many have found their voice, along with hope, after enduring the despair and darkness of abuse and assault. We’ll come together at the Celebration of Light Gala to herald the healing progress made and to provide continued support for the safe haven that Kristi House has been for the children since 1995. The evening celebrates the light that, together, we can shed on the dark topic of child abuse and sex trafficking. The elegant evening will feature gourmet cuisine, great cocktails and fine wine, dancing, a luxury auction and a few surprises.

For more information, please review the information below and contact Gina Santibanez (, 305-547-6845) in the Development Office with any questions or to get involved.
