Honoring Griffin & Alisa Gmelich

The Families Matter Benefit and Celebration is the signature fundraising event for Friends of the Family, providing critical support for the important work of the organization. The evening will feature an exciting silent auction, sumptuous dinner, sparkling comedy and musical entertainment, and the presentation of some very special awards. This event always earns rave reviews for providing a fun-filled, gracious and inspiring night and often is sold out.

The 2018 Founders Award will be presented to Griffin and Alisa Gmelich in recognition of their unwavering support for the work of Friends of the Family and their notable commitment to causes that benefit children and families. Griffin is Senior Vice President of Nacelle Company, the nation's largest independent producer and distributor of one-hour comedy specials and scripted/unscripted content for traditional and new media platforms. Alisa is Vice President of Marketing at International House of Pancakes LLC. With a notable dedication to family, friends and community, Griffin and Alisa are also devoted parents to their children, Holly and Casey.

Supporting FOF gives us all the opportunity to impact critical global issues including poverty, violence, and equity right here in our own city. Given the uncertainty of our times, this support has never been more critical. Please consider being a special part of this event by purchasing a sponsorship which includes a table or premium tickets. Sponsorships received by March 5th will be recognized in the invitation which will be mailed in late April.
