Saturday August 12th 2017 This Premier Gala Event is designed to showcase entertainment, LA lifestyles, fine dining, architectural design, outstanding auctions, and more. Created nearly two decades ago by AIDS Service Center (ASC) in Pasadena, the event grew into one of the most successful charity events in the area. With the closing of ASC this past year, The Thrive Tribe Foundation (TTF) chose to continue the legacy and engaged former Executive Director Anthony Guthmiller to produce the event this year. Big Night Out will continue to explore the beauty and uniqueness of Southern California now benefiting TTF. Big Night Out has become one of the region’s most anticipated events and fundraisers. Over four hundred guests gather at a grand estate for the event’s gala reception and then proceed to various themed dinner parties for the rest of the evening. The Thrive Tribe Foundation (TTF) is excited to announce that the premier gala reception will be hosted at the Hancock Park 1920’s English-Tudor style home of Dean Hansell, founder of GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) and leader in the LGBTQ community. The Premier Gala Reception is 4:00 – 7:00 PM featuring outstanding auctions and samplings from the finest local restaurants & caterers. Guests will then depart to one of many uniquely themed dinner parties throughout the area. The dinner parties are hosted at a unique array of architecturally significant homes and famous sites. Dinners in the past have included themes including 50th Anniversary of Swanson TV Dinners, Barbie Turns 50, Italian Nights, Cuban-themed Havana Nights, Jazz on the Rocks – Starlit Evening of Jazz, Art Night, and many more. Tickets are $250 for the full night of reception and dinner party or $150 for just the gala reception. *Tickets and donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law
