2017 Blue Door Gala
November 3, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - November 4, 2017 @ 12:00 AM
Don’t miss this special celebration honoring 50 years of service to youth in Austin! With a cocktail hour, gourmet dinner, and live auction at JW Marriott Austin, our Blue Door Gala will be a night to remember.
The Blue Door Gala will kick off at 6 p.m. with a silent auction and cocktail hour, followed by a gourmet dinner and a live auction featuring the Cowboy Auctioneer, Heath Hale, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Afterward, guests will be encouraged to stick around for a late-night after-party, featuring an open bar, midnight snacks, aerial bartenders from Rapt and music from Texas Pro DJ. The event is black tie optional.
In addition to luxurious live auction packages featuring getaways to New York, Mexico and France, and a hometown experience at Star Hill Ranch, the silent auction will feature a collection of five doors. These doors—two of which were painted by BGCAA Club kids and three that were generously painted by local artists Becka Barbour, Leigh Watson and Mike Johnson—represent the five decades that BGCAA has served Austin-area youth.
To purchase a Blue Door Gala ticket or sponsorship—ranging from $100 for after-party tickets to $10,000 for gold sponsors—visit the gala’s event page.
For Austinites not attending the gala but wanting to get involved, there are multiple ways to do so. Prior to the gala, those interested can enter a luxury raffle for a chance to win a his-or-hers Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch. Raffle tickets are available online. The cost is $100 for one ticket and $250 for three, with proceeds benefiting BGCAA. Winners will be announced at the gala, but there is no need to be present to win.
