BBBSBA Annual Gala: Mentoring Magic!
Mentoring Magic: Little Moments, Big Magic

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area Annual Gala

Singing, dancing in the aisles, excited cheers from the crowd, empowering speeches: our annual Gala, Mentoring Magic: Little Moments Big Magic, was not only a night to remember but also our most successful event yet, raising over $475,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area!

Highlights of the evening included a performance from the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, our gregarious MC Dan Ashley (who also hopped in on the drums!), lively auctioneer Greg Quiroga, heartwarming videos showcasing our matches, and our esteemed speakers Libby Schaaf and Sabin Lomac. We were also honored to receive a Certificate of Commendation from Senator Dianne Feinstein's office. The presence of each of these great personalities made the night incredibly memorable.

As BBBSBA CEO Dawn Kruger noted in her opening remarks, the 900 relationships that Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area supports each year provide the children we serve with never-before-imagined opportunities. Those opportunities translate into the magic of success.

Thank you to all our attendees, donors, and supporters - you made magic happen!
