The Big Day is Almost Here!

  • Show up and show out in your festive cocktail best. Hit the coat check on your way in and remember to grab your table card!

  • Support our amazing and courageous dancers! It’s our version of “Dancing with the Stars” featuring community leaders with their professional dancer partners competing for the YA Mirror Ball Trophy. Your donations – both votes and event tickets – go toward the dancer’s fundraising goal to determine the winner!
  • Enter our Winner's Choice Raffle. The challenge will be deciding which of these 3 amazing trips you'll take: Grand Canyon glamping, culinary delights in Tuscany, or wine and chocolate in Porto, Portugal. Only 200 tickets will be sold.
  • Guests enjoy an all-inclusive night of cocktails, dinner and dessert, a lively dance floor, a spectacular dance contest, and amazing entertainment among 350 fellow arts supporters.

“Dazzle is truly a feel-good event, and we hope that anyone who feels passionately about the arts and children will join us for a great evening. Not only will people have a terrific time, but they’ll also leave knowing that they’ve helped to bring much-needed arts programming to children across the region.”
