The Children of Promise Gala brings together NECC families, friends, and donors for a night of inspiration and philanthropy. The event began as the “Night of Music” in 2001 and has since transformed into a night that features live music, awards, and an auction benefitting NECC. Since its creation, attendees and sponsors have raised over $6.5 million.
