ARVO Foundation Gala

ARVO Foundation Gala

The Saturday evening before the Annual Meeting, the ARVO Foundation hosts a dinner of over 400 members and friends of ARVO to honor individuals and organizations who have shown dedication to the ARVO Foundation and its mission. The Gala is the ARVO Foundation's largest fundraising event of the year.

We invite you to join your friends and colleagues under the swaying palms for a very special Hawaiian-themed evening of tropical drinks, family-style luau dinner, Polynesian entertainment, surprises and fun as we kick off the ARVO week with a party on the lagoon to benefit the ARVO Foundation.
