Party with PAALS:
an UN-Gala

A big PAALS WOOF to all of our guests, sponsors and entertainers who helped make the 2017 UN-Gala the best and most successful UN-Gala ever!

Party with PAALS: an UN-Gala is one of the area’s most unique fundraisers and PAALS’ largest event of the year.

Each year’s event has a different theme allowing all the participants to express their creative side in their choice of attire. As this is an UN-Gala, leave your cocktail dresses and suits at home and come dressed in theme appropriate attire (or just casual if you prefer). As you plan your attire, remember this is a 21 and up party, so don’t worry about scaring the kids.

Some of the UN-Gala themes from past years have been Star Wars: The Fun Awaits, Superheros, Dogaritaville and Wild West.

Each Un-Gala features lots of food, entertainment, silent and live auctions, fun games and, of course, plenty of adult beverages.

The next UN-Gala is scheduled for March 11, 2017 at the South Carolina State Museum from 7PM to 11PM. Tickets will go on sale about 45 to 60 days before the event. We will notify everyone on our e-Pupdate mailing list when ticket sales begin and announce the 2017 theme at the same time. (You can sign up for the e-Pupdate mailing list using the form at the bottom of this page.)

PAALS invites any company who is interested in supporting PAALS and reaching out to PAALS supporters to become an UN-Gala sponsor for th 2017 event. Both cash and in-kind sponsors are welcome. If you are interested in being a sponsor of Party with PAALS Un-Gala 2017, please email Sandra Gaines at [email protected].

You are invited to the 9th annual Party with PAALS – an UN-Gala. You will enjoy a festive evening immersed in the funky universe of Steampunk!.

Party with PAALS – an UN-Gala is one of the area’s most unique fundraisers and PAALS’ largest event of the year. Your participation at this event will help us raise the $30,000 it takes to raise and train each service dog.
