10th Annual Heart & Soul Gala

Caritas Gala Logo_Color

Mark your calendar for Saturday, February 4th, 2023 for our 10th annual Heart and Soul Gala!

This year is extra special as we gather at the Regency Hotel in O’Fallon, IL to not only celebrate our 10th annual gala, but also Caritas’ 75th Anniversary. We can’t wait to revisit and share the tremendous impact Caritas has had on children, families and our community throughout the years.

Registration for the event is now open! Click the button below to register and purchase tickets. We look forward to celebrating with you soon!

We’d like to offer a heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s Heart & Soul Gala a resounding success!


Thanks to everyone’s generous support we exceeded our goal and raised nearly $280,000! These funds will help us continue to further our mission and make a tremendous impact on the well-being of individuals, children, and families all across Southern Illinois. 

We couldn’t have done it without our donors, sponsors, board, gala committee, staff and countless others.

If you missed the gala, you can still view the 75th Anniversary – Legacy of Love video on our YouTube channel to learn more about the impact we’ve been able to make throughout our community for more than seven decades!

Thank You For Your Support!

Thank you to all of those who supported our Heart & Soul Gala this year. We appreciate the love and support from those in our local communities to help us strengthen the social and emotional well-being of individuals and families in order to create healthy relationships, loving homes, and strong communities.
