SPONSOR NOW

We are breaking the rules

Since 2010, the Westside Development Corporation has hosted its signature fundraising event, The Westside Honors Gala. Noted as the best outdoor Gala in the city, it has focused on recognizing the merits of individuals and organizations who have positively contributed to the Westside.

This year we are very excited to celebrate ten years of honorees in a non-traditional fashion. We are planning for a casual, reception-like atmosphere with a variety of food and refreshment stations in addition to honoree displays, a silent auction, and live music under the stars.

The mostly outdoor celebration will be at the historic Basila Frocks building, which we recently purchased and will soon begin renovating. Bring your “vision goggles” and imagine how this property will be brought back to life and transformed into a collaborative workspace for startups and small businesses.

As always, dress is Westside Chic!

The Westside Development Corporation Invites you to
a celebration honoring 10 years of Westside Legends
