The 32nd annual Green Tie Gala is set for March 8 at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

Patrick Raglow, executive director of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, said the gala offers attendees the opportunity to “eat, drink and change a life.”

The event, which features fine dining and several auctions, will benefit the Sanctuary Women's Development Centers and Holy Family Home of Catholic Charities, which provide assistance to metro-area homeless women.

Raglow said marketing consultant and media strategist Linda Haneborg is chairman of the event, and longtime philanthropist Jim Everest is the 2014 Green Tie Gala Ambassador.

Visited by more than 70 women on a daily basis, Sanctuary Women's Development Center in a former church in Stockyards City offers social services to help restore feelings of self-worth, confidence and dignity to homeless and at-risk women in Oklahoma City. In addition, Sanctuary offers its visitors access to phones and computers for job seeking, job and life skills development, counseling, links to other community resources, and a shower and laundry facility.

Holy Family Home in Midwest City provides a community living environment for up to 12 women and eight children on a revolving basis. Women who enter this program work closely with a case manager who helps establish a plan of action for overcoming barriers to success. Once enrolled, clients will stay from three months to two years as they work to achieve self-sufficiency.
