2018 Annual Gala


While we might associate each season with fond memories and fun activities, the reality is often different for the children we serve. We are raising awareness this year about how each season affects children’s social and emotional well-being and their quality of sleep. Though the needs of the children change season to season, the ritual of a loving bedtime and quality night’s sleep are needed every night for a good day.


Our Gala may be over, but you can still bring good nights for good days to the children we serve by donating to Pajama Program.

Make Mud Matter with Pajama Program and Tough Mudder

Pajama Program and Tough Mudder are offering you the opportunity to take on Tough Mudder 2018 races for free! Register as a Charity Partner with Pajama Program, and we will cover your registration costs. You or your group can choose any event and enter to raise critical funds to provide children with the tools for a loving bedtime and a good night, which leads to a good day.



Are you ready to test your limits?

What does being a Charity Partner entail?

By becoming a charity participant this year, you will raise critical funds to give children at-risk a comforting bedtime so they can have restful, restorative sleep and wake up ready for the day ahead. Every participant commits to raising $500 for Pajama Program and will be provided a Crowdrise page and fundraising support.

What is Tough Mudder?

Tough Mudder is a challenging course of 10-12 miles of mud and obstacles specifically designed to test your teamwork and toughness. Tough Mudder Half is shorter, just 5-6 miles, and made up of Tough Mudder’s best-rated collaborative obstacles minus ice or electricity. You can sign up for any event held across the country throughout the year.


Why $500

Raising the minimum amount of $500 per person will allow us to share the gifts of 100 new pajamas and storybooks to children across the country. Raising $500 also entitles you to the following:

  • Acknowledgment on social media before, during, and after the event
