Sparrow Gala

Feb. 25, 2023 | 6 - 11 p.m.

High Caliber Karting & Entertainment

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines — it’s time for one more lap around the track! Join us for a thrilling night of racing and connection as we shift into gear for a great cause. This year is another unique twist on our classic gala, with activities like high-speed go karting and axe throwing alongside our traditional silent auction, delectable food, and cocktails. This will be our last elevated-casual gala before returning to the traditional, formal dress in 2024, so don your favorite racing-chic attire to get in on all the action.

Proceeds benefit Emergency Services at Sparrow. 
From the region’s only Level-1 Trauma Center to emergency departments that span our region, wherever an emergency happens, Sparrow is near.

Silent Auction & Bucket Raffle Details

Begins at 6 p.m. 
Ticket sales end at 8:50 p.m.

Both auction and raffle will close at 9 p.m.

Winners announced and pickup begins at 9:30 p.m.

If you are not present to pick up your winnings, Sparrow Foundation will contact you the following week.  

Silent Auction:  
The silent auction portion of Gala will be focused on experiences, and in honor of old school Galas, will be paper bidding sheets rather than using the Givi app. If you've already registered for Givi, don't worry! You don't need to take any additional steps other than to come visit the silent auction at Gala and bid using the paper bidding sheets provided.

NEW - Bucket Raffle 
A new feature for 2023 is the addition of a bucket raffle. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets and place them in the bucket(s) of the item(s) they hope to win. Ticket prices are listed below and will be sold at several locations throughout the evening. Tickets can be purchased by cash or credit card and there is no limit to the number you can buy.  

Ticket prices: 
1 for $20  

6 for $50

20 for $100
