Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Ballston Spa–based end-of-life care organization, Gateway House of Peace, will be hosting its seventh annual gala virtually on November 5.

This year’s event asks that attendees show up with an “Attitude of Gratitude” to support the charitable organization, which provides comfort and care to terminally ill patients. The “house” in the organization’s name is an actual Saratoga County home equipped with two bedrooms on the main floor, a living room, kitchen and back deck (seasonal). The upstairs also has two small rooms to accommodate visiting relatives or friends. (Temporarily, due to the pandemic, Gateway has scaled back the number of residents able to stay at the house from two to one. )

The virtual gala will be emceed by Kiss 102.3 FM’s Terry O’Donnell, who will also provide the night’s entertainment, and tickets include a takeout dinner from Longfellow’s Restaurant. (Tickets cost $100 apiece and will be limited to 200 total.) The event will also feature door prizes—with one $10,000 raffle winner to be announced on the livestream—as well as a silent auction. Items up for bids include everything from 2021 Red Sox tickets, a Mike Tyson signed boxing glove, a diamond ring, Caffè Lena membership and maybe the most Saratoga item of all, a lawn jockey.

The organization has set a goal of $75,000 for the gala and at press time, has already reached more than $30,000 in total donations.
