PAst Events


Our first fundraiser in Key Largo was held on August 13, 2022 at the Reefhouse Resort and Marina. We held a fun Casino Night which was attended by 150 locals. This was the perfect, relaxed event where we could begin relationships with local business owners and residents of the Upper Keys and share the work of Wesley House.

Guests tried their luck at Craps, Roulette, Texas Hold ‘Em, Black Jack, Slots, and Three-Card Poker. The evening culimated with the drawing for the coveted raffle prizes. We had over $10,000 in gift certificates and merchandise graciously donated by businesses throughout the Keys. We are excited to grow our awareness in the Upper Keys and continue to cultivate relationships with the community.

Day Gala

Our annual Valentine’s Gala has found a new home at the beautiful and historic Custom House Museum in Old Town Key West. Inspired by the architecture, we chose a Baroque-Bridgerton style theme and the guests loved it! The locale glittered with festive lights and the Ladies and Lords were donned in period attire.

The silent auction, which was diligently chaired by Board Member Joy McPeters and volunteer Teri Marconi, boasted 400 amazing items and garnered the most funds from previous Galas!

Black Tie

“Oh what a night!” It was a night that exuded elegance, generosity, enjoyment, and heartfelt acknowledgement of the WHFS mission. Thanks to our sponsors and attendees, we far exceeded our fundraising goals for the event. Guests were dazzled by the gorgeous transformation of the Marriott Beachside Ballroom.

Michael Halpern gave a moving, heartfelt testimony to his personal connection with the work of Wesley House. An exciting paddle raise lead by our  auctioneer, Janice Hamilton, brought us to the culmination of the evening with a full house dancing to the music of DJ Cardi and his drummer and sax player!
