Bigger Together: A Virtual Gala

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Inland Northwest is excited to announce that we are hosting our annual Gala event this year on Saturday, November 7th, from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.

Yep, you guessed it, this will be a virtual event, featuring a live online paddle raise, auction, and a mix of content to entertain and engage guests while telling the story of the work we do. While the event will be open for anyone to view online, guests who purchase tickets will receive a “gala basket” that includes dessert, local wine, and an activity kit for guests with young children. 

Our theme for this year’s event is Bigger Together, which speaks directly to the experience that our one-to-one mentoring relationships nurture among the kids we serve and their Big Sisters and Big Brothers. As an organization, we have been facilitating, supporting, and sustaining these relationships for more than 50 years…the value of these relationships has never been more relevant than it is today.  

More than 85% of our annual operating budget is supported by contributions from private households, businesses, and foundations. Historically, our Gala is by far our largest fundraising event and provides an opportunity for our stakeholders to mix and mingle, celebrate our mission, and contribute to the advancement of our organization.

The format for this year’s event is different, for sure, but the spirit of the event is the same, and the impact of our work is greater than ever. Let’s grow Bigger Together!
