Saturday’s rain didn’t dampen the spirits of our 300+ gala guests (sold out!), who danced, ate, and drank for hours at the beautiful Tokeneke Club on May 13th. This GENEROUS crowd raised over $550,000 to support the youth of Domus! We’re overwhelmed by your commitment to improving the lives of the kids in our care. Thank you for your understanding and empathy. Together, we’re improving their chances for happy, productive, fulfilling lives.

Domus’ 2016 Gala: Hot Night in Havana

The gala was a huge success, raising over $500,000 to support the youth in Domus’ care! Cigars were hand-rolled and smoked, rums were tasted, salsa dancing was attempted, and fun was had by all. We’re incredibly grateful to our guests and to our amazing, generous sponsors–you all helped make it our most financially successful gala yet and will change thousands of lives because of it.

May 10, 2014 – Thank you to the nearly 300 guests who joined us for our Caribbean Night gala: cocktails on the patio, then dinner, and great live and silent auction items. We were treated to an amazing performance by the award-winning Domus Steppers, who thrilled the crowd, who then did their own dancing to talented band ETA. The evening was a huge success. Special thanks to all our sponsors! You’ve made great things possible for our kids! PHOTOS!

May 11, 2013 – Domus Spring Gala
The 2013 spring gala was right on the water at the Wee Burn Beach Club in Rowayton. Nearly 300 guests enjoyed rum punches and hors d’oeuvres on the patio as they shopped for silent auction items via their mobile bidding devices. The crowd enjoyed an inspiring video done by volunteer and professional videographer Winifred Marion, then tucked into a surf and turf dinner. A live auction included a Labrador Retriever puppy, a 40-person catered clambake, and golf at Shelter Harbor, Fishers Island, and Calusa Pines in Florida. Nearly $400,000 was raised to support the kids of Domus, thanks to our generous guests and sponsors! Photos here.
