The Imagine Gala: April 26, 2014, Diablo Country Club

The 2014 Imagine Gala

When the dust finally settled on Opportunity Junction's 2013 Imagine Gala, presented by Chevron, we had together raised more than $100,000 to help get Contra Costa families on the road to self-sufficiency! Thank you. And let's do it again!
