2019 Annual Gala & After-Party

Thanks to your support, the 2019 Gala was a huge success!

On Saturday, May 18th, we hosted our Annual Gala & After-Party at San Francisco’s historic Palace of Fine Arts. Centered on the theme of Our Youth, Our City, Our Future, nearly 1,100 attendees were shown the numerous ways BGCSF makes a difference in the lives of young people in San Francisco. Thanks to the incredible generosity of event sponsors and attendees, we raised $2.54M in support of the youth of our City and their futures.

The evening began with an interactive reception featuring program and staff highlights that coincided with the Gala's theme: Our Youth, Our City, Our Future. Areas of the reception focused on BGCSF's 14 San Francisco-based locations as well as Camp Mendocino, and how those locations affect the youth we serve. The reception included three memorable youth performances.

The dinner program boasted a fun, festive environment that invited guests to learn about how BGCSF impacts youth across San Francisco. The event featured performances from Clubhouse youth, testimonials from BGCSF staff and our 2019 Youth of the Year, and a moving speech from BGCSF President Rob Connolly.

Following dinner, attendees were treated to a lively After-Party featuring San Francisco's favorite band, Pride & Joy. Guests enjoyed dancing, scrumptious snacks from McCalls Catering, and an exuberant atmosphere. The party continued at the Palace of Fine Arts til the wee hours of the morning in celebration of BGCSF's mission and the people who make it happen.
