KIND Signature Events

As part of our 2023 vision, we will be scaling back our special events in the coming year.

While we still intend to gather, something no longer sits well with us about spending thousands of dollars and valuable staff effort planning dinners and golf outings to support our families, while those same families often struggle to put dinner on the table.

We have decided to “ungala” this year, and host fewer events that feel more authentic to our community—events that allow you, our supporters, and fellow health equity warriors, to connect directly with those we serve through cultural celebrations and gatherings. We look forward to sharing more about those plans with you soon, but feel free to email me anytime if you have questions: and to read more about our 2023 plans here.

If you are looking for a specific event please contact KIND executive director, Ellie Burbee at
