“Now more than ever, there is a need across the Greater Philadelphia region for more programming designed to positively impact, support and inspire our youth,” said Marjorie Harris, Board Chair, Sixers Youth Foundation. “The annual Sixers Youth Foundation Gala gives us the opportunity to do just that by raising funds to support organizations that create valuable youth sports and education-based programming in the communities we serve. The best part is that our Gala is one of the most unique and fun nights of the year, where you’ll get to mingle with 76ers stars past and present, listen to amazing live performers, and enjoy great food and drink.”

In addition to attending the Gala in-person, fans can support the Sixers Youth Foundation through the team’s online auction, featuring special items and experiences. The online auction goes live on Jan. 12 and runs through 9:30 p.m. on Jan. 17. Fans can bid on items and experiences at or in-person at the Gala.

The Sixers Youth Foundation Gala is underwritten in part by the ownership group of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment.
