KGT 2021 - Online!

April 14-24, 2021

As we journey through this time of social distancing and uncertainty, the need for gathering together (online) and celebrating Kuriakos's 90th Anniversary has become even more clear.

We still need your support, and The Kuriakos Community still needs an opportunity to gather.

Online Program - April 24

The auction will occur online for the full week, culminating with an online event on the evening of April 24.

The online auction will open for bids on April 14.

Even though we won't be meeting in Bentley that evening, you are welcome and encouraged to "join us". Please save the date!

Kuriakos Gathers Together 2020 was a wonderful evening!

Last year, despite moving online just a month before the event, we raised over $71,000 in celebration of our 90th Anniversary.

This year, our goal is $91,000 between KGT and our Anniversary Celebrations at Thanksgiving.

If there's one thing we've learned over the past year, it's that

Kuriakos is more than just a facility; it's our community.

Kuriakos happens whenever, wherever, and however we gather.

Thanks for being a part of us!

For those who can't make it to KGT, we'd like to invite you
to DONATE, or to SUPPORT our ministry in other ways.
