About Gala

As a service organization, The Big Event is funded solely through the generosity of private and corporate donors. The Big Event’s annual Gala and Silent Auction is the largest source of donations to help cover The Big Event’s annual operating costs. The evening includes dinner, entertainment, and silent auctions. With the funds raised through this year’s Gala, The Big Event hopes to recruit 22,000 students to serve 2,500 residents of the Bryan and College Station Community.
