UPDATE: 3/13/20 – “To all of our ticket holders and sponsors,

Out of an abundance of caution relating to recent developments surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), unfortunately, we have to postpone the March 21st Gala. We will set a new date once we see what the virus continues to do and based on when officials say it is safe to begin having events again (we are hoping late spring/early summer).
We have made this decision based on advice from medical and health professionals, local government and state and federal agencies.
The Gala will still feature exciting attractions, awesome people and delicious food and drink. We will still have amazing raffle prizes and best people in our community in attendance.
We wish you health and happiness during this time and, like you, look forward to this all being over.
For those who have already purchased tickets, those tickets can be used for the new. For those that have not yet purchased tickets, you can do so on our website to reserve your spot!

On Saturday, March 21st, local nonprofit Going Places will host their inaugural gala, “Welcome to the Circus: Reliving your favorite childhood memory of Joy.” The event will provide the funds needed to support the organization’s programs and help buy bikes for disadvantaged kids.

The evening will consist of food, drinks, live and silent auctions, and live entertainment from Live Radio. Dinner will be provided along with entertainment by a mermaid from Deep Blue Aquatics, a magician from the Los Angeles Magic Castle, and other surprises.

Interested parties can buy tickets online here. The gala starts at 7 pm and will be held at the Patriots Point Pavilon at the Golf Links (1 Patriots Point Pavilion, Mt. Pleasant).

The event is for adults only, but there will be childcare available during the event, which you can signup for here. Childcare is being offered by Skip and Sully in Mt Pleasant, which will donate 25% back to Going Places.

About Going Places

Going Places’ mission is to provide disadvantaged kids with their most basic childhood right – A right to Joy. They do that by surprising every child in the low-income, high-poverty elementary schools with a brand new, high quality, custom bike. This bike represents Joy, freedom, escape, ownership, and restored innocence in these children’s lives. By the beginning of June, Going Places will have given 2060 bikes to disadvantaged kids in 3 years’ time. Going Places is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
