Madison Club Charity Gala

Odyssey Raises $200,000 via Madison Club Charity Gala

The recent charity gala at the Madison Club benefiting the Odyssey Project was a smashing success in every way! Over 240 guests joined us for a heartfelt celebration of Odyssey’s impact, a fun evening with old and new friends, and a phenomenal fundraiser. Best of all, they experienced the power of love, hope, justice, and transformation thanks to inspiring words from Odyssey graduates Keena Atkinson and Corey Saffold, Dean of Continuing Studies Jeff Russell, Odyssey Co-Director Emily Auerbach, and guest speaker Judge Everett Mitchell.

On behalf of all the Odyssey families whose lives will be better because of the record-setting $200,000 raised Saturday night, thank you to everyone who contributed to making the evening so moving and inspiring.

"Joining the Odyssey Project has seriously felt like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders. When you're used to being told 'no' or that you can't afford to do certain things, one small yes can make a huge difference. I've never been so excited for the future until the day that I first stepped into the Odyssey classroom! It's given me back my motivation, my knowledge, and my dignity."
