Since 2010, the WDC has hosted its signature funding event, The Westside Honors Gala. Noted as the best outdoor Gala in the city and held every spring at Rosedale Park, the Gala recognizes and merits those who have positively contributed to the Westside. The signature fundraising event draws 500 supporters annually & would not be possible without partners who believe in our mission and are passionate about improving the quality of life for families, business owners, and the community of the Westside.
