2017 Annual Gala

BGCLB Annual Gala 2017
Each year the Boys & Girls Clubs of Long Beach hosts one of the city’s premier charity events. On Saturday, May 20th, 2017, our annual Gala Dinner & Auction will be held. Our goal is to provide our guests a real party — with fine dining, entertainment, and a live and silent auction — so that as guests contribute, they have fun doing it!

This is our largest annual fund-raising event, from the financial perspective and in terms of participation and publicity. We are anticipating that 500+ guests will enjoy a wonderful evening. All net proceeds from the gala will go directly to support programs for the kids.

When: Saturday May 20, 2017, 5:00 PM
Where: Under the beautiful tent at Marine Stadium
Appian Way & Bay Shore Avenue, Long Beach, CA
