“The Annual Grand Gala is back! This event has been a staple in the community for several decades and as we honor our 50-year history and pay homage to our ’70s roots, we hope you’ll come celebrate with us,” shared Marlo Dykeman, YBBBS Donor Relations Director.

Following the “Call of the Disco Ball,” guests can share in the Saturday Night Fever-themed vibes, complete with music by Funk Frequency, a gourmet menu of ’70s food, and disco balls galore, as well as a dance floor, light-up bar, and much more.

The event returns to the ballroom of the Prescott Resort on Saturday, Nov. 12, with the evening kicking off at 6 p.m. Before dinner, guests will have plenty of time to browse the Silent Auction packages, participate in the Dueling Bartenders show, featuring Barry Barbe and Bob Kolar, and grab a raffle ticket for the 2.5-carat diamond tennis bracelet donated by Raskin’s Jewelers.  

The program after dinner will feature heartfelt stories of life-altering Matches made by the agency, as well as a peek into the BIG future planned for workforce development for young adults. 

“We have a lot to celebrate and to share, including plans to deepen and expand our services to young adults up to age 24,” said Dykeman. 

For guests looking to support the agency’s BIG future plans through bidding on unique and exclusive travel and adventure packages, the Live Auction after dinner will be the place to be. Former Prescott Mayor Greg Mengarelli returns this year as the charismatic auctioneer.

As the gala winds up around 9, the fun does not need to stop! Throw in a special After-Party and you and your friends can continue the celebration in downtown Prescott.
