Big Brothers/Big Sisters announces 'Grand Gala'
Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters announces its 31st annual Grand Gala Dinner and Auction on Saturday, Nov. 10, at The Prescott Resort. The much anticipated annual Gala is the final event fundraiser for YBBBS this calendar year.
The Gala will reflect a New Orleans Jazz theme and YBBBS is excited to have Mr. Mike Vax and his Orchestra performing throughout the evening for your dining and dancing pleasure. Mike Vax is recognized internationally for his virtuosity with the trumpet. He is also Director of the Prescott Jazz Summit. Mike has wowed audiences for over 50 years and is a Jazz legend.
The fabulous evening will begin at 5 p.m. with a cocktail reception featuring wine tastings provided by several local wineries. During the reception, guests will have the opportunity to bid on a variety of silent auction items and purchase raffle tickets for a vacation in Cabo San Lucas! The 350 guests in attendance will enjoy a New Orleans inspired gourmet menu prepared by Prescott Resort Chef Jeff Adams, using local produce from Whipstone Farms, local fish from Rainbow Trout Farms, and local beef from Orme Ranch. After dinner, bidders will be quick to raise their paddles as the bidding begins for the live auction, followed by the announcement of the raffle winner!
It has been shown that matched youth are 46 percent less likely to do drugs. "Littles" have also been shown to have stronger relationships with their parents and others.
