Living Out Loud 2020 - A Virtual Gala

The Table You Choose Says A Lot About Your Personality… So Choose Wisely 😊 Gather your A-Team of friends to get Saved By The Bell, put your Golden Girls in a nice outfit and support the Stepping Stone Dynasty!

Don’t miss this once-in-a-pandemic chance to celebrate with Stepping Stone and Miss Richfield 1981!

Here's How It Works

Purchase Virtual Tickets or Table

Purchase your virtual tickets or table of 10 and invite your friends to join the fun. You all get a swag bag or box!

The Swag Bag or Box

Look out for your goodies in the mail to arrive before the gala. Each pack has something just for you, and we want to see videos and pictures when you discover what's inside.

Join in the festivities on Friday, October 23

Use your box to decorate and adorn. Dress or undress for success. Show your Stepping Stone Spirit. And tuck in for one of the wildest hours you can imagine on our star-spangled celebrity Zoom Room!

Living Out Loud Bidding Wars Currently in Progress

The Living Out Loud virtual auction is in full swing! You don’t want to miss out on the great deals. With items that have starting bids of $10, there is literally something for everyone to bid on, from gourmet kettle corn to a private yacht cruise.
Some items already have multiple bidders vying for them so make sure you get in there before it’s too late! And don’t worry. We’ll let you know via email if someone outbids you. Don’t let that item go without a fight!
Just like everything else LOL, all funds raised from the auction benefit the life-saving services of Stepping Stone San Diego! And even if you’re not able to attend the event, you can still participate in the auction. The auction will remain open until 6:00 on the night of the event, Friday, October 23.
