About the Gala

Our Gala Dinner & Auction is held in our hometown of Tacoma, WA each year. We begin the evening with a silent auction of baskets and smaller items generously donated by local businesses and community members. We have a delicious steak dinner planned for guests to enjoy while they bid in a live auction for big ticket items ranging from get-away trips to some locally sourced gifts and activities. We expect about 200 local business leaders and partners to attend.

Individual Tickets $70.00

About The TEARS Foundation

The TEARS Foundation seeks to compassionately assist newly bereaved families with their baby’s funeral expenses and with ongoing emotional support. We have provided thousands of families with financial assistance for the expenses they face in making final arrangements for their lost child from generous donation from the community. It is the only resource of its kind available across the nation and each day more families reach out for our help. We strive to bring awareness to pregnancy and infant loss, as it is an important cause affecting one in four women. Together, we can take a stand to help these families.
