Due to the impact of Hurricane Ian, The Immokalee Foundation has rescheduled the date and changed the venue for their 2022 Charity Classic Celebration – Sueños, The Dream Gala. The event will now be held at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort on January 21, 2023.

“This decision was the result of much deliberation, and our thoughts and prayers are with everyone during this difficult time,” said Noemi Perez, President & CEO of The Immokalee Foundation. “With so many who are coming to grips with the devastating impact and will be dealing with recovery for some time, we believe that this is the responsible decision to make. We look forward to celebrating with everyone in January”
The Gala is the main fundraiser of the year, with all ticket sales and sponsorships going directly to support the dreams of the 1300+ deserving students at The Immokalee Foundation. The event allows the Immokalee Foundation to operate throughout the year and continue doing what they do best – forever change the lives of Immokalee’s youth.
Tickets or sponsorships that have already been purchased will automatically carry over to the rescheduled event. Ticket purchases and sponsorships will continue to be available.
