Festivities include an exclusive VIP reception, cocktail hour, silent auction, live program, dinner, dancing and after party. Since its inception, the By the Bay Gala has raised more than $3.45 million in support the Annual Fund, which allows the Academy to enhance and sustain programs across campus, including technology, classroom resources, ministry and financial aid.

New to 2022: An off-site VIP party the week before the auction will officially kick off Black & White By the Bay. The exclusive guest list will be limited to event sponsors and underwriters.
