As BGCWPA continues to ReMEMEBER, ReIMAGINE, ReINVEST in our members, our programs and communities, we have taken on the challenge of relaunching our fundraisers to raise even more critical scholarships for our youth and to bring even more awareness to our mission. With this, in the face of COVID-19 and for the safety of our supporters, BGCWPA is excited to announce our largest fundraiser of the year, The Bridge to Great Futures Gala, is going virtual! Join us on August 5th with special guest, Smokey Robinson, to support thousands of local youth!

Now more than ever, local families need support so we may continue to offer an affordable, safe place for their children to attend during the summer and after school. With your participation in The Bridge to Great Futures Gala, you can help us grow our efforts to meet the demands of the academic gap caused by COVID-19, to allow parents to go back to work with the peace of mind of knowing their child is being cared for, to continue to provide awareness and access for our youth to progress in their educational and career opportunities and to offer a fun atmosphere where kids can grow into thoughtful, responsible adults. 

This exclusive virtual event will be a VIP evening with our keynote speaker and BGCA Alumni, Smokey Robinson, our event emcee and KDKA anchor, Kristine Sorensen, entertainment from Nashville star, Dillon Dixon, and a chance to network with some of the most well connected guests Pittsburgh has to offer with appetizers and Smokey Robinson wine delivered right to your door!

Join our Honorary Event Co-Chairs, Vince and Nancy Morales for a mix & mingle with Smokey Robinson as part of our VIP ticket! Our virtual VIP reception will include a delivered, enhanced charcuterie board for 2 with dessert, two bottles of Smokey Robinson wine (one of which will be autographed) and special recognition on our virtual event program! Additionally, each VIP purchase will provide scholarship support for a local youth to have Clubhouse access for almost an entire school year!*

As the largest and most comprehensive after school and summer camp provider in both Allegheny and Somerset counties, your support is essential now more than ever in providing scholarships for the several thousand youth we serve annually: of which close to 70% are on or below the poverty line. Enjoy this exclusive event while knowing you are helping BGCWPA to continue our relief and recovery efforts during and beyond COVID-19. Each ticket purchase, VIP and General Admission, will directly support a local youth to attend our summer camp, specialty or after school programming.

We thank you for your ticket purchase below so we may continue our mission to activate and advance the potential in every child by doing whatever it takes to ensure they have GREAT FUTURES! We can’t wait to see you for The Bridge to Great Futures Gala on August 5th!
