The Inspire Gala, a Mardi Gras Masquerade, is hosted by the Children’s Home Society of Florida to raise funds to support our programs in the Tampa Bay area including Joshua House-a residential, therapeutic living facility for children in foster care; and Mort Elementary, a Community Partnership School.

This is a black-tie event that you don’t want to miss! Join us for a night of dinner, dancing, live music, open bar, silent auctions, and raffles. The Inspire Gala brings together 350 community leaders and influencers to support the children and families in our community and we hope you can join us!

Established in 1902 as a haven for children arriving in Jacksonville on the orphan trains, CHS is still the difference between survival and success for many of Florida’s children. Now serving more than 50,000 children and families statewide, no other organization has the size, scope or solution-driven focus that CHS brings to empower children to cross bridges to success. The vision at CHS is a world where all children realize their full potential.
