Anniversary Gala

Save the Date!

Join us at the Hylton Center’s 10th Anniversary Gala on April 17, 2020. Check back later this year for more information.

Every spring, the Hylton Center celebrates our anniversary with an exciting Gala Celebration! Join us and your fellow arts patrons as we celebrate the past season of performances and programs, all while raising funds to support the future work of the Hylton Center. The evening includes an elegant reception in the Didlake Grand Foyer, dinner on the Merchant Hall Stage, an exciting live auction, and closes with our After Party featuring dancing, drinks, and delectable bites. There are many ways to participate in the Gala – from purchasing individual tickets to sponsoring a table. Your contribution will support our performances and programs, as well as our Endowment.
