One night, one community, working toward one future. A future without homelessness. The Mayor’s Gala will launch a tradition in Daytona—an annual night of philanthropy to end homelessness. The evening will include a cocktail reception, dinner, honoree awards, and a program highlighting the work of First Step Shelter. Premier Table Host, Advocate Table Host & Individual Gala Tickets are available. We are counting on you! Host a Table or Purchase a ticket! Table Hosts will be key to meeting the fundraising goal of the first annual Mayor’s Gala. As a Table Host, you will either purchase a table or pledge to fill a table; each has an equal impact on the event's success. Ready to register? Because of the early commitment from our corporate sponsors and their extraordinary generosity, the gala expenses were underwritten as of November 2022. 100% of your ticket or table will go directly to programs and services at First Step Shelter. You have the power to transform lives by registering for the gala. Questions? Do you prefer to register by phone?
