Annual Voices From the Heart Gala

The Voices from the Heart Gala is the Franciscan Center’s signature event held every year in September. It is a celebration of YOU, the good people of Baltimore who built and supported the Franciscan Center, and of the hundreds of thousands of men, women and children we have served together for over 50 years.

In this unprecedented time we need an unprecedented answer for serving the most vulnerable among us this winter. Funds raised from the Virtual Voices from the Heart Gala will go to helping us tent our parking lot and serve outside from Mid November through March 1, 2021. This virtual gala will also give us a chance to present our Spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare Awards which honors both individuals and corporate partners who exemplify the spirit of our patrons in their dedication to serving Baltimore’s most vulnerable citizens.
