2023 Dinner-Less Dinner®

This year's Dinner-Less Dinner celebrates the many Faces of The Ark: our dedicated staff, volunteers, and supporters, and the thousands of clients we serve. The Ark's signature, annual fundraiser raises critical funds to care for those in need, and because our dinner is "Dinner-Less," you know that every single dollar you contribute goes directly where it’s needed most.

About the Dinner-Less Dinner

The Ark ensures that every dollar we raise directly supports our clients. That’s why our community continues to treasure the Dinner-Less Dinner, which raised nearly $1 million in 2022 for critical assistance for our clients. You’re invited to join us. Rather than spending money on food, entertainment, and decor, you can feel confident that your gift to The Ark is used to meet the greatest needs of our community.

Our Legacy

When the Dinner-Less Dinner was established more than 20 years ago, it was a pioneering program for its time. Since then, more and more organizations have joined The Ark in replacing the gala event, and instead dedicating precious contributions from donors to the core work of the organization. The Ark has fielded inquiries about our unique fundraising model from organizations across the United States and Israel, and we pride ourselves on creating this inspiring model that directly supports those in our community who need it most.
