Celebrate with America’s Strongest Athletes at the Tokyo Strong Golden Gala

Nov. 21, 2019, 2:09 p.m. (ET)

You’re invited to celebrate USA Weightlifting athletes at a star-studded gala next April in New York City’s iconic Grand Central Station. 


The Tokyo Strong Golden Gala on the evening of April 14, 2020 will feature Olympians past and present as we celebrate and raise money for the athletes representing the stars and stripes at next year’s Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. The Golden Gala will happen one day before celebrations happening across New York City marking 100 days to the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.


The Golden Gala, emceed by a very special guest, will give you an opportunity to meet current and former members of Team USA in an intimate setting. To build excitement for next year’s Games, you will get a taste of Tokyo culture, with entertainment that reflects Japan’s Olympic City. 


Set in Vanderbilt Hall of one of New York City’s most recognizable landmarks, Grand Central Station, the Golden Gala includes a hosted bar, a three-course dinner and once-in-a-lifetime experiences with Olympic champions and the nation’s strongest athletes. Four-time Olympic medalist and three-time Olympic Champion Pyrros Dimas will share his Olympic experience, and his observations on a historic first four years with USA Weightlifting.


Beyond dining with the stars of the sport, you will have the opportunity to bid on exclusive and carefully curated items in a silent auction and raffle, benefiting USA Weightlifting athletes. 


Individual tickets are $600 each, or a table of 10 seats can be reserved for $5500. If you want to support American athletes, but cannot attend the Golden Gala, you have the option of sending an Olympian in your place, by sponsoring their seat at $600. Corporate and individual sponsorships, including exclusive experiences with America’s best athletes are also available by contacting join@goldengala2020.com.

Money raised at the Golden Gala will go towards USA Weightlifting’s Tokyo Strong initiative, a program designed to create an environment to set up American weightlifting athletes for success in Tokyo.
