Silver Lining Gala Celebrating Youth First’s 25th Anniversary

Tickets to this event are currently sold out. We invite you to support Youth First by participating in our online auction!

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Youth First! In honor of over two decades of strengthening kids and families, Youth First will host the Silver Lining Gala Celebrating Youth First’s 25th Anniversary on Saturday, April 22, 2023 at USI’s Carter Hall.

Silver is the 25th anniversary symbol, which is fitting because Youth First Social Workers and prevention programs are the silver lining for kids and families. Youth First Social Workers provide a professionally trained, caring presence for students struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, substance use, or suicidal thoughts. Free of charge and right down the hall, Youth First Social Workers help students thrive and succeed.

This ticketed event benefitting Youth First will include a formal dinner, program, and entertainment featuring live music and dancing! The Gala will be accompanied by Youth First’s free and virtual Passport to Adventure Benefit Auction featuring vacation packages, weekend getaways, designer handbags, golf packages, themed baskets, and much more! Our online auction will go live on Monday, April 10th and end on Saturday, April 22nd.
