10th Annual Spring Gala

May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Young Professionals Networking Group invites you to the 10th Annual Spring Gala. Join us for an elegant evening of specialty cocktails, dancing, and games – proceeds benefit our featured charity, SLO Special Olympics! This beloved annual event is open to the community, so please support our fundraising efforts by inviting friends, family, and coworkers (21+).

Dress up, grab your glitz & glam, and get ready for an evening of fun! We’ll have specialty cocktails by Sidecar, super fun games to play, and awesome raffle and silent auction items to win! This event has previously been known as Monte Carlo, but this year we are modifying our theme to match our charity because we found it to be so meaningful and imperative. THE REVOLUTION IS INCLUSION promotes the transformative power and positive impact of a world where ALL are included. Over 5 million Special Olympic athletes are leading the charge for full inclusion of people with Intellectual Disabilities (ID), more relevant now than ever. “Our mission at Special Olympics is to help others find joy, confidence and fulfillment — no matter who they are. We seek to inspire people to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential.” Please read more about it here: www.jointherevolution.org/inclusion.

For OUR event, this means dressing in bright, rainbow colors, so feel free to go big, go bold, and bust out those sequins and sparkles!


The Penny, an incredible NEW venue by Sidecar and Tinker Tin Trailer Co.!
