BBBSBA Annual Gala: Celebrating Mentors

Thank You!
Celebrating Mentors: Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area Annual Gala

April 24, 2015
Four Seasons Hotel, San Francisco

You did it!! Thanks to your generous support of our 2015 Annual Gala - Celebrating Mentors, we raised over $450,000 - making this our most successful gala ever!! In addition, during our incredibly energetic live auction, our Fund a Need raised more than double the amount raised last year. This was definitely a banner night for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area, and you made it all possible!

We want to once again thank all of the individuals, community organizations and businesses that supported this year's event. We are especially grateful to our lead sponsor, Ameriprise Financial, who not only supported the event financially, but through their attendance, allowed us to introduce over 70 new guests to our program and the inspiring relationships of our Bigs and Littles. Additionally, without the generosity of both Sully Sullenberger and Dan Ashley, none of this would have been possible.

As Sully mentioned in his speech, he would not be where he is today without the training and support he received from his life-long mentor. Our goal is to provide every Bay Area child with that same opportunity, the opportunity to enter into a life-changing, life-saving relationship that will impact their lives for the better...forever. Your participation at last week's gala means that we will be able to support even more youth in need of mentors, unlock more doors and unleash more possibilities.

Our honorees, Isabella and Justin, say it best in this video.
