Join us on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 at New York City's iconic Grand Central Terminal for a special evening celebrating the stars of sport and raise money for American athletes representing the stars & stripes at 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. 


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. 


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. American athletes have a once-in-a-generation chance at scoring multiple medals at the Olympic Games next summer, and Tokyo Strong aims to make sure our athletes have all of the tools necessary to make their Olympic dreams come true.
