Throughout the year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah hosts fundraising events to continue our one-to-one mentoring programs all year round. Our biggest fundraising event is the annual ‘Big Night Out’ Gala. This year, join us at the Salt Lake Convention Center on November 11th to support the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah organization, our staff, and matches! 

Who’s Invited?

Companies, donors, supporters, and sponsors, are invited to come together and participate in our event. You can register and purchase tickets for the Gala ahead of time online. Sponsorship options are also available for purchase online – these options include reservations for a table of 8. If you are unable to attend the event, you can join as a virtual bidder and participate in the silent auction! 

What to Expect: 

At this year’s Big Night Out, you can expect a night out with great food, a silent auction, live music, and a program. The theme for this year’s Gala is “Masquerade Ball, Unmasking Potential.” 

Here’s a sample of what to expect at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah’s Big Night Out: 

  • Mouth-watering samples from over a dozen of Utah’s finest chefs and bakers
  • A silent auction with over 100 packages up for bidding
  • Opportunity Drawing for a one-week vacation getaway to St. Thomas 
  • A fashion show featuring our amazing Matches
  • And much more!

Silent Auction 

This year, you can help us unmask potential in our community by bidding in our online silent auction. Bids and donations at the auction will help us to match the 75 kids we have on our waiting list right now. 


This event is possible thanks to the support of our sponsors. This year, we have partnered with TASTE UTAH and a presenting sponsor, Progressive Leasing, and 13 other wonderful sponsors. Through their support, each of our sponsors supports BBBSU’s mission of igniting the potential of youth in our community. 

Why Participate?

Fundraising events play a pivotal role in supporting nonprofit organizations like ours. These events serve as platforms where communities come together to contribute to a shared cause. This event in particular serves as an opportunity to showcase the positive impact of our organization’s work and mission. Apart from merely collecting funds, events like these allow people to connect with the organization’s mission on a personal level. 

By participating in events like the annual “Big Night Out,” individuals and companies not only provide financial support but also become active advocates for one-to-one mentoring. Through partnerships with sponsors, these events amplify the reach and influence of BBBSU, ensuring that the resources generated contribute directly to our programs.
