Note: this post refers to an event that occurred in a previous year. Please visit our Centrum Gala page for information on the current year’s Gala festivities!
The 2016 Centrum Gala Dinner & Auction achieved an all-time fundraising record: prior to costs, among generous auction donors, sponsors and 258 guests, Centrum raised $253, 803 for its mission and programs. Everyone at Centrum is profoundly grateful to the many people who made this year’s Gala a success. We especially enjoyed the bidding war inspired by the gorgeous Premium Dessert pictured here by Sweet Laurette’s. The whole cake sold for $1,200 and then, we hear, was re-sold by the slice!
On behalf of everyone at Centrum, we offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported Passport to Dreams, the 2016 Centrum Gala and Auction. The mighty members of Centrum’s volunteer Gala Committee–they gave it their all! Catering services provided by Fort Worden, auction items donated by our community of supporters, and a capacity crowd fueled the evening. And so we thank you, again, for your most generous support of Centrum! We look forward to seeing you again soon at the Fort!
Evening photos are posted here – more to come in the upcoming week!
