In celebration of building great futures for thousands of Austin-area youth and to commemorate the 2019 opening of the Home Club on the Sheth Family Campus, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area (BGCAA) is hosting the 2019 Great Futures Gala — There’s No Place Like Home. The annual gala will be held at the JW Marriott Austin on Friday, Nov. 1 at 6:30 p.m. The special event will celebrate the profound impact of BGCAA programs, donors, volunteers, community advocates and more — and honor the vital and important work of helping local youth who need us most to build great futures in our city. Whitney and Jamaal Charles will be the gala’s honorary co-chairs, and KXAN’S Jim Spencer will serve as the master of ceremonies.
Presented by JLM Financial Partners, the 2019 Great Futures Gala will kick off with a cocktail hour, followed by live entertainment and a gourmet dinner. The evening’s program will feature a live auction sponsored by the Misner Family Foundation, as well as live music from Austin favorites like The Peterson Brothers Band and more. The After-Hours Party will include music, dancing and small bites. Individual tickets and group sponsorships are available for purchase online.View Map
