Sapphire Gala Auction & Sponsorships

2018 will mark our 65th year and our Sapphire Gala to benefit the NYCBTA education fund.

Our Sapphire Gala will delight and surprise you with music, dinner, dancing, open bar and of course, our silent auction.

We would appreciate anything you can donate or sponsor to help with this event. We need your support to make our Gala a success!

We consider this our big fundraiser of the year – the monies raised provide the needed resources for NYCBTA to be able to continue our mission of elevating industry related education and growing the travel and hospitality community, in NYC and beyond, for our members and students.

Popular donation items include the following:

  • Theme Baskets – wine, cocktails, cooking etc. (you are welcome to donate items and we will put together the baskets)
  • Electronics – iPads, Kindle’s, GPS devices, etc.
  • Gift Cards – shopping, iTunes, massage, restaurant
  • Logo merchandise for gift boxes and bags
  • Game tickets – Yankees, Mets, Rangers, Knicks, Giants, Jets, US Open games, etc
  • Merchandise for the home – small electronics, wine glasses, crystal bowls etc.
  • And of course… airline tickets, hotel stays, and car rental days

We also have several sponsorship opportunities available to help place your company’s name in front of hundreds of corporate and travel industry decision-makers. Would you be interested in sponsoring the event?
