PIE for the PEOPLE Inaugural Gala


Please join us on Thursday, May 16th, as we turn to an exciting new chapter for PIE with our first ever gala! We will celebrate our community and raise funds that will support us with critical flexible spending to empower our work. We truly hope you can be a part of this special time in our journey! 

Our Inaugural PIE for the PEOPLE gala is officially SOLD OUT!! Thank you so much for the support everyone. Looking to celebrate and raise funds together on Thursday.

PIE for the PEOPLE is inspired by staff and clients shared journeys as we seek to strengthen our community. 

Our semi-formal, alcohol-free event will be at the Des Moines Beach Park Event Center auditorium from 5:30-8:30 PM. We’ll start with a social hour followed by fundraising, dinner, entertainment, and the debut of PIE’s first ever short film! The fundraising portion of the evening will feature a silent auction, Dessert Dash, and a Fund-A-Need paddle raise as we hope to raise enough for a youth programs van.
