Julie's Dream



“Dream Big” is Julie’s Dream annual gala fundraiser where we bring together nearly 500 members of the Julie’s Dream community to celebrate Julie’s Dream’s impact and to “build the dream” for underserved youth in Atlanta – experiencing the hope and love of Christ through outdoor adventures. The event highlights what Julie’s Dream offers youth in Atlanta and celebrates the amazing stories of growth, perseverance, and strength these youth demonstrate. Dream Big hosts live music, a festive cocktail hour, a delicious seated dinner, a live and super silent auction and fundraising games and activities.

We have been overwhelmed by the generosity and support of the Julie’s Dream community at our Dream Big event. Dream Big 2020 raised over $500,000 to fund transformational outdoor adventures for youth in 2020! All of these funds will go directly towards outdoor adventures for youth at our partner organizations: PAW Kids, Agape Youth & Family Center, and Wilderness Works.

We look forward to Dream Big 2021 – Mark your calendar for January 23rd, 2021!
