Get Ready to Spark at the Centrum Gala

Gala-Cover Ignite the passion that changes lives!

We hope you can join us at the 2010 Centrum Gala Dinner & Auction, Saturday, October 16, at the Fort Worden Commons. The Gala is Centrum's largest annual fundraising event.

In one special evening, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Bid in live and silent auctions on up to 200 experiences and treasured items to enhance your life, engage your senses, and spark your soul.
  • Savor the pleasures of fine wines and four courses of local autumnal cuisine prepared by chef extraordinaire Jay Payne and local guest chefs.
  • Enjoy an incandescent evening celebrating the arts, the joys of friendship, and the community we share.

The Centrum Gala Dinner & Auction raises support for Centrum's programs in the literary, performing and visual arts. To request an invitation, please contact Mary Hilts at or 360.385.3102 ext. 116.

To whet your appetite, start with a slide-show reveal of the items in the Live Auction! In addition to the Gala's traditional favorites, you will see the Louisiana Country Mardi Gras experience guided by Centrum's Peter McCracken and a private concert offered by Lucinda Carver, Artistic Director for Chamber Music.

Should you be unable to attend the Gala, you may bid for items by proxy. Download and fill out a proxy bid form and return to us by noon on Friday, October 15.
