Dinner Gala & Roy Firestone Award


The Annual Dinner Gala & Roy Firestone Award is Westcoast Sports Associates’ premier fundraising event, providing hundreds of thousands of dollars in grant funding to Southern California communities.  Following the event’s tradition special guests hold an exclusive “Up Close” interview with WSA Honorary Chair Roy Firestone.  

WSA’s leadership team was proud to recognize Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as its 2017 Honoree and is excited for its next installment in Fall 2018.  Details will be shared here soon.



There is nothing more important than a community coming together, standing shoulder to shoulder to realize that we are so much stronger together.

This event is a great example of how we can change the world together.
