MHALA Events

MHALA holds several community and fundraising events throughout the year. Find out more about upcoming events below!

Fundraising Events

Proceeds from MHALA fundraising events are earmarked toward the services and programs we provide our members.

Our annual gala, Under the Toque, brings together some of the area’s top chefs for an extravagant dining experience, coupled with live and silent auctions. This is one of Long Beach’s premier events, with proceeds benefitting the work we do for our members at MHALA. In 2019, Under the Toque honored the philanthropic work of Nancy Foster.

We also team up with area businesses to host meaningful events that help us boost our efforts toward our members’ recovery. If you would like to become a fundraising partner, please contact MHALA's Development Department at
