All of us at Centrum—board, staff, and volunteers alike—look forward to the annual Centrum Gala. It’s a chance to celebrate and get festive, with both longstanding supporters and new, while raising money to ensure Centrum meets its mission to build a world of greater civility and inclusion through the arts. Over the past two decades, hundreds of Gala Committee members have applied their imaginations and unique skills to making the Gala better with each successive year.
In 2020, despite the pandemic, it was no different. We had a wonderful Gala! We missed the opportunity to gather with you safely and in-person, but we were able to host our first-ever virtual fundraising event. Thanks to Centrum’s Board of Directors, Gala Planning Group, enterprising staff, and creative community of donors and friends, it was a resounding financial success.
This year, we were counting on the opportunity to gather in person. However, the rise and transmissibility of the COVID19 Delta variant has us moving the Centrum Gala to the spring of 2022.
If you are one of the many past guests eager to attend the Centrum Gala, please hold that thought! We thank you for your patience, and invite you to look for a Save the Date announcement for the Centrum Gala in the next two months.
In the meantime, please know that every donation you make to Centrum before December 31, 2021 will be most generously matched dollar-for-dollar by the Sage Foundation. To make your donation, go to centrum.org, and accept our gratitude for your continuing and transformational support.
