Events

Thank you to all who supported our 2018 Solas Awards Gala!

Together, we raised $500,000 for the IIIC’s legal, education, and wellness services for immigrants and refugees. 
We are tremendously grateful to those who generously sponsored the event, who supported our silent auction, live auction, and live ask, and who joined us on the night. Thank you!
