Virtual Gala!

Join us for our first-ever virtual gala TONIGHT! WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Join us for our very first virtual gala tonight! Since we cannot host the annual gala in person this year due to COVID-19, we decided to bring the fun into your homes via a live stream tonight from 6:45-7:50 p.m. (CDT)! The gala is our most important fundraiser each year that allows us to keep the gates open for all to enjoy. Details are below!

Visit go.rallyup.com/fbg or text "Friendship2020" to 855-202-2100 to see the auction items, bid, and donate! No donation is too small.

  • Even if you do not purchase or bid on a silent/live auction item, you can still make donations before and during the event!
