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.

Donate an Auction Item:

One way to support The Big Event is to donate an auction item for The Big Event Gala’s silent auction. The silent auction in particular generates the majority of donations received at Gala. Without the support and donation of auction items, The Big Event’s Gala could not be possible. To find out more information about donating an auction item, please review our sponsorship packet and agreement (below).

To donate an item, please contact the Operations Executives by email at or through the contact information below.
