Compassion Delivered

2022 5th Annual Be the Change Gala

Join us in Celebrating 5 Years!

We are looking forward to being together to raise awareness and support for the families and individuals we serve here in Stark County. Compassion Delivered was formed to provide healthy meals for free to people coping with life-threatening or terminal illnesses and diseases. We want to give time and rest to those we serve.

The goal of our Be the Change Gala is to reflect on the families and individuals we have served over the last 5 years but to also prepare for those we have yet to meet that will need our services. We strive to help more people in our community and we can't do that without you.

To date, we have supported over 225 people and are close to achieving 20,000 meals made and delivered for free to those who need our meals. Join us on Friday, October 14, 2022, at the Doubletree by Hilton in Downtown Canton from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. 

Plated Dinner - Live Auction - Silent Auction - Live Music - Cocktails - & Much More!

This is not only our 5th Gala but we will be commemorating our 5th year as an organization. Let's toast to the impact that we have been able to make and press onto the future. 

$125 per person or $900 for a table of 8. 

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Email for more information. Compassion Delivered is a 501c3 Nonprofit.
