Reach for the Stars Gala

Side By Side celebrated Bay Area youth at our annual gala, Reach for the Stars, on Saturday, November 4, 2023.

Reach for the Stars featured a night of jazz, signature cocktails, Supper-Club style dining, a live auction MC’ed by California Senator Mike McGuire, dancing, and much more.

The Gala raised critical funds needed to continue Side By Side’s behavioral and mental health services for nearly 2,500 Bay Area youth and their families in Alameda, Marin, Napa, and Sonoma Counties.
