The Big Spring Gala & Auction began in 1982 and over 36 years has evolved into much more than your typical charity auction. The evening consists of top notch performers, a first class dinner, exciting raffles and giveaways, silent and live auctions and is capped off with a rockin' dance party. Despite having over 600 patrons in attendance, this event has an intimate feel.
