Bravo Greater Des Moines will bring back its fundraiser gala Feb. 5, 2022, as an in-person event, with proceeds going to offset the organization’s operating expenses. Whatever is raised above that level will go back to the community in grants to Bravo’s 75 nonprofit cultural partners, says Sally Dix, Bravo’s executive director.

The gala was last held live in 2020, just weeks before the pandemic began to shut things down.

Dix says Bravo is maintaining the elements that make the gala unique, but also refreshing it to keep the familiar black-tie, cocktail party format exciting and focused on the local arts, culture and heritage sectors.

Sponsorships for the 2022 Bravo Awards Gala are now on sale for past event partners. Depending on availability, tickets for new supporters and the general public will go on sale Dec. 10. More information is available and sponsorship requests can be made by emailing
