The Centrum Gala

Mark your calendar for October 13, 2007!

Centrum’s vision is to be a gathering place for artists and thinkers from around the world, students of all ages and backgrounds, and audiences seeking extraordinary cultural enrichment. Centrum’s annual fundraiser, The Gala Dinner and Auction, helps make that vision a reality.

The apex of the Port Townsend social season is a dazzling evening of philanthropy, fine food, and fashion, and a celebration of Centrum’s commitment to artistic excellence, personal transformation, and community. Imagine!–a gala dinner and auction–is Centrum’s largest fundraiser. It is always a sell-out.

Businesses and individuals donate generously to the auction offering an array of special experiences- trips, dinners, and unique events and items. On auction night, 350 attendees—dressed to the nines—engage in friendly competitive bidding. In 2006 over $230,000 was given in celebration and support of Centrum. The event is conceived and run by an extraordinary cadre of volunteers whose dedicated support for Centrum’s arts and creative education programs infuses the evening with a wonderful spirit of philanthropy and community.
