This event will gather our philanthropic community for an evening of inspiring performances, and testimonials by BGCSF staff, youth, and families as we celebrate a new day of hope, joy and optimism!

We will recognize our community for standing together in solidarity with our Club communities during the pandemic and for continuing to support us now as we work to bring a sense of normalcy and joy back to the lives of San Francisco youth.

After dinner, all guests are invited to Miami Vibes | The Club hosted by BGCSF's NextGen Leadership Council. This party will feature themed cocktails, delectable party bites, specially curated experiences, and space for party-goers to comfortably socialize. Enjoy backyard games, pool tables, karaoke lounge, a silent disco, and more!

BGCSF is committed to ensuring a healthy and safe in-person event and will closely adhere to the health guidance from San Francisco's Department of Health and other government health agencies.

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.
