Saturday, October 7th, 2023 from 5:30 - 10:30pm 

Our premier annual fundraising event, the BE GREAT Gala, is a fun-filled, mission-focused evening complete with dinner, live and silent auctions, and special entertainment. 

Each year at our BE GREAT Gala, we honor and recognize a DreamMaker, an individual who has made a significant impact in the lives of our youth, and helping make dreams come true. As philanthropic visionaries and beloved friends of the Club, we are honored to recognize the David A. Pyle Family & One Root Foundation as our 2023 DreamMaker. Their support has nurtured a legacy of empowerment and growth, inspiring youth to pursue greatness and achieve their greatest potential.

We also recognize a Corporate Champion, a partner who embodies the spirit of a true Blue Ambassador, ensuring all children will build life-long, positive memories, and inspire future generations. This year, we honor Pacific Life Foundation for their longstanding partnership supporting our Club's ongoing initiatives to make a lasting impact for the members we serve.
