Virtual Event


28th Annual Don Quixote Virtual Gala

On June 23, 2021, at 5:30pm, El Valor will host our 28th Annual Don Quixote Gala virtually. After a challenging year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to spend an evening with all of you to share the amazing work El Valor continues to do in the community and to thank our kind supporters.

This year, we will honor two individuals for their commitment and generosity toward our organization. Mr. Matthew Turk of INTREN, will receive the El Valor Champion Award and Mr. Dan Arce of Tropical Optical, will receive the Guadalupe Reyes Founder’s Award. Please join us as we honor these two compassionate individuals who have continuously contributed to El Valor’s programming that serves over 4,000 children, adults with disabilities, and their families each year. We hope you will join us! 

For sponsorship information or any questions, contact Emma at emma.debiasio@elvalor.net or (312) 492-5936.

Purchase your event ticket today to receive your one of a kind gift set. The gift set will have everything you need to celebrate with us. There will be ingredients for our Paloma mixing demonstration (two unique cantaritos included!), a gift from our children and adults with disabilities, and a chance to enter our silent auction. This year’s silent auction will feature weekend getaways, tickets for Chicago sporting events, handcrafted artwork, and more.
