Noche para los Niños
(Night for the Children)
Noche para los Niños (Night for the Children) is a uniquely festive celebration for adults benefiting Kids in Focus, held late October or early November each year and featuring a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) theme set under the stars with excitement at every turn. Guests stroll through the beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces of the Arizona Heritage Center at Papago Park to sample delicious gourmet foods from participating restaurants and a pageant of performers including live music and a variety of artistic performers including jugglers, aerialists, contortionists, tarot card readers, and more. Guests can participate in a silent and live auction filled with once-in-a-lifetime experiences. An inspiring exhibit of photos created by children in KIF programs is also on display.
It is truly a feast for the senses you don’t want to miss! Stay tuned for details about our fifth annual gala in 2023.
Noche para los Niños 2022 is in the books, and it couldn’t have been more perfect! Thank you to Event Chair Bea Rocklin and the 2022 planning committee, the many generous sponsors and supporters, and our invaluable volunteers for making this a fun and memorable evening, and for raising critical funds to continue our programs for kids in need. A special thank you to our beloved Honorary Chair, Billie Jo Herberger. You are forever in our hearts.
