An Evening in Wonderland – WISEPlace Gala

An Evening in Wonderland is an annual gala event benefitting WISEplace, a 501c3 nonprofit community of housing and hope for women in crisis. Proceeds from the event provide basic needs for women experiencing homelessness including housing, clothing, physical and emotional nourishment, and vocational and life skills training. WISEPlace is one of the few places unaccompanied homeless women can go to begin again.

An Evening in Wonderland marks the occasion of the 20th anniversary of WISEPlace’s annual gala. We will welcome our guests to the SeaCliff County Club in Huntington Beach to partake in an excellent dinner and a fun and unique silent and live auction. All proceeds benefit WISEPlace, helping to sustain operations year-round.

Join us in celebrating the 2019 Honorees:

Individual Honoree – Harriet A. Harris
Corporate Honoree – Affordable Housing Access, Bill Hirsch, CEO and Jon Webb, CPO
