Long Beach BLAST hosts two major events each year: Wine BLAST in the fall and Breakfast BLAST in the spring/summer.
The Wine BLAST event consists of a wine tasting and silent auction. This event is usually held in November, and guests can enjoy wines from various vineyards paired with delicious hors d'oeuvres. Placed throughout the venue are numerous auction items that can be bidded on which range from restaurant gift certificates, sporting event tickets, hotel stays, and specialty items. A live auction for the "big ticket" is held, and immediately following, sections for the silent auction close throughout the rest of the evening.

The Breakfast BLAST event brings together supporters of Long Beach BLAST to hear a report from the Mayor of Long Beach on the state of youth in Long Beach. Many business and community leaders learn about the services we provide and the impact it has on the youth we serve. Every year a mentor/mentee team share their experience working together whether it's about academics, reaching future goals, or the possibility of going to college.
