Gentlemen's Haberdashery Fundraiser - benefiting the Heart of Jesus Retreat Center

The Gentlemen’s Haberdashery is one of Orange County’s most celebrated charitable fundraisers and social events.  The Haberdashery provides the major funding for the Heart of Jesus Retreat Center in Santa Ana, CA.

The Heart of Jesus Retreat Center is one of a few retreat centers in the nation focusing primarily on the faith life of children and youth. Our retreats are presented in a personal, joyful and prayerful atmosphere. We believe it is important to enable children, youth and adults to think deeply about “what” they are doing and “why”. Retreat days focus on deepening the friendship each person has with Jesus, the faith they have in His Word and on how to express faith in daily life.

The Gentlemen’s Haberdashery makes it possible to keep the donation requests to half of what it would cost to run the retreats and maintain the beautiful facility provided for our guests at the Heart of Jesus Retreat Center.  We are grateful to all those who help and all those who attend this much needed Benefit to promote this great work that enables thousands to attend retreats annually.
