Gems & Jeans Ball

The Annual Gems & Jeans Ball is the signature fundraising event for the Sylvia Thomas Center for Adoptive and Foster Families. Held each November in celebration of National Adoption Month, the event aims to raise awareness of the services the center provides free of charge for more than 500 adoptive and foster families each year in Hillsborough County.

The Gems & Jeans Ball includes live music, food and drinks, and a silent auction. All funds raised directly support activities at the center for the children and families we serve.
