22nd Annual Global Gala
October 15 @ 5:30 pm
By walking through the doors of Northern Nevada International Center’s Global Gala: Connecting Reno’s Global Family, Friday, October 15, you will be crossing into a brighter future and a broader present. In addition to a dinner and a program worth remembering, you’ll be opening doors to the world. You will directly help our work of leading Nevada’s global engagement through refugee resettlement, international exchanges and language access programs.
Join the celebration
We’ve created an amazing night for our 22nd Annual Global Gala: Connecting Reno’s Global Family. We’ve added more and better opportunities to hear from and interact with alumni visitors from around the world who participated in our program, as well as those in the Reno area. These different stations will be available for you to peruse while you enjoy a cocktail hour strolling through the National Automobile Museum.
Be a part of something big
Global events call us to do more, and to do that, we need your support more than ever. We need our most ardent backers to celebrate what we have accomplished while empowering us to hit our next and greatest level of service capability.
