What is The Big Gala?

The Big Gala is normally our biggest black-tie event of the year! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are hosting our first-ever VIRTUAL Big Gala.

This night may look different than years past, but we can assure you it will still be filled with many of our fun signature elements! 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, but now more than ever our communities need to come together to defend the potential of youth in Northwest Florida! 

We encourage you to invite your friends and/or family over for your own Big Gala watch party. Many of the sponsorships include a Bigger Together at Home Gala Kit to make entertaining easy. Dress up or wear your favorite pajamas, this will be a night you won't want to miss!

As everyone adjusts to this world that no one could have predicted, it has been a challenge for the strongest of us. Isolating us, creating challenges no one has had to navigate before. It is time to come together to support the youth in our community.  These Littles have incredible potential, and now it is time to help defend it. There are many ways to support our annual Big Gala. All proceeds benefit BBBSNWFL. Thank you so much for all your support!
