Our 68th Gala celebrates the magnificent Palais Garnier Opera House in Paris, French operas, and the cultural and artistic contributions of France. The Gala is YPO’s annual major fundraising event.  Guests will be transported to Paris during the first act of the evening, which features a welcome reception with a Parisienne jazz club theme, silent auction with wonderful luxury vacations, curated unique experiences, sports memorabilia,  exquisite jewelry, and world renown art. The evening’s second act promises a delicious multi-course dinner inside the “Palais”, special guests, live band, and entertainment by leading opera and theatre performers in the beautiful Ritz Carlton Ballroom.
“With the generous support of our wonderful sponsors and friends, we are delighted to promote opera, provide music education programs for more than 20,000 children annually, and share the joy of music with all generations throughout South Florida’s diverse community.” said Lisa Hogan, YPO President. “In addition to our youth programs, we are marking the 30th Year of our Educator of Note Award and presenting our National Voice Competition in the spring. Vive la YPO!”
