2017 First Light Gala

Please join us for the 2017 First Light Gala.  This year the theme is Light Up the Night because First Light brightens the lives of the homeless women and children we serve.   

Saturday, May 6, 2017
6:30 to 9:30
Haven, 2515 Sixth Avenue South, Birmingham, Alabama

The 2017 Gala will have great music, cocktails, great food and silent and live auctions. There will be plenty of parking with valet service available.

There will be several special opportunities to contribute to the mission and take home prizes, such as  "Spin Around Town" and the always popular wine pull. And we will have silly hats and other fun things for you to wear when you get your picture taken by renowned photographer, Wynter Byrd, to help you remember this fun evening.

But consider reserving a table to ensure that your friends will be able to sit with you:
