Thank you to all who participated in Evening at the Oasis, the 2017 Centrum Gala and Auction!
Centrum’s volunteer Gala Committee helped guests make some memories this past Saturday, October 14, 2017, with a welcome from Eli the Camel; opulent décor evoking a desert oasis at twilight; menu selections to suit the theme catered by Fort Worden; and an abundance of intriguing items donated by Centrum supporters from throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Here’s to the countless acts of creativity and hundreds of hours invested by the Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers that made the evening a great success!
Our Evening at the Oasis achieved an all-time Centrum Gala fundraising record: prior to costs, our philanthropic auction donors, sponsors, and 253 guests raised $255,423 for Centrum’s mission and programs. On behalf of all the people we serve, thank you for promoting creative experiences that change lives.
