WoW Utah's Gala Event is like a night at the Oscars! On November 9, 2019, we celebrate our Women of Worth and their journey over the past year with the community in attendance to honor their amazing transformation internally and externally.

Our Gala is an EXTRAORDINARY Black Tie Event.

This year, America’s Got Talent finalist and champion, Kechi Okwuchi. The Nigerian-born singer is the headline entertainment at the 8th Annual WoW Utah Gala & Silent Auction, Saturday, Nov. 9th at the brand new venue, 6SIX9, located at 669 S. West Temple, Salt Lake City.

Kechi was one of the two survivors of the Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145 crash on Dec. 5, 2005, that claimed the lives of 107 people – 60 of which were her classmates from Loyola Jesuit College. She received third-degree burns and has undergone over a hundred reconstructive surgeries. She is now a world-renowned vocalist and motivational speak after receiving the Golden Buzzer, sending her straight to the finals of AGT’s The Champions.

Her prelude performance leads into the finale and primary purpose of the gala that honors the courageous women who have completed the WoW Utah program. Each woman will be escorted down a red carpet, onto the stage to proclaim publicly, “I am a woman of worth.” This proclamation and spotlight celebrates each woman’s achievement of rebuilding her life after domestic violence, forced polygamy, substance abuse or life-threatening illness.
