On September 10, 2017, the September Gala, an annual fundraising event, was held at the Glendale Civic Auditorium with close to 400 attendees. It was a great evening filled with joy, camaraderie, music and an enjoyable sense of coming together for a good cause. September Gala was created 20 years ago in Riverside, California. Annual events have been held regularly every September since its inception. Proceeds have been distributed for a variety of purposes, some of which include: general event operation, construction and renovations of M.T.O. centers, supporting families in local communities, youth development activities, special ceremonies, and world-wide projects.
