Blue Tie Gala

About This Event

Our Blue Tie Gala is a celebration of children and the importance of family and community to their future success. This inspired evening features a formal multi-course dinner prepared by acclaimed chefs and paired with world-class wines, an auction like no other, entertainment, dancing and more.

Why blue?

It’s the national color that represents child abuse prevention. Join us for Children’s Bureau’s Blue Tie Gala and be a part of the story to prevent child abuse.
