Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson is celebrating 55 years, since our founding in Tucson, with Jazz & Gin, inviting guys in suits and dolls in glam to be our guests at the 2018 BIG Gala hosted at

Loews Ventana Canyon Resort’s Grand Ballroom

Saturday September 29, 2018.

Two knocks, whisper the password and you are in!

Behind the door is the celebration of the year where flappers, gangsters, and silent screen stars come together because a little party never hurt anyone!  Get caught up in the Jazz of the Roaring 20’s, play some cards, and savor the free flowing “Prohibition” gin – and you have a full night in the rarified atmosphere of a speakeasy!

This year’s BIG Gala Jazz & Gin will feature live entertainment provided by The Wildcat Jazz Band and a special ‘Ella Fitzgerald’ performance provided by our very own former Little Sister, Crystal Stark.


The evening begins at 5:00 p.m. with passed appetizers and a signature drink in our Jazz Speakeasy!  Guests will enjoy casino games, live performers and a silent auction accessible right on their phones!

Dinner service will begin about 7:00 p.m., gourmet plated with complimentary wine service, live performances by   Crystal Stark and a riveting evening program that supports Tucson’s youth.

Guests will be thrilled by a live auction to close the program about 9:00 p.m.  Stay to win prizes in the casino, sip gin in the speakeasy and dance til midnight!
