The Gala Supports Center Programs and Initiatives

June 6, 2023

On Thursday, May 25, community members gathered on Thrivent Hall’s stage for The Gala, the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center’s annual fundraiser. The Gala attendees raised a glass to a future where all feel seen, heard and valued while sharing in live performing arts experiences. It was a night of celebration for the arts and all that we have achieved together as a community for the live performing arts.

The Gala proved to be a success! Engaging in live auctions, community members were able to contribute generously to help support your Fox Cities P.A.C.’s education programs and initiatives. These include the Amcor Education Series, Center Stage High School Musical Theater Program and the Frank C. Shattuck Performing Arts Touch the Hearts of Students (P.A.T.H.S.) Program, as well as interactive opportunities for the community through the Community First Community Engagement Series.

The funds raised from The Gala will go toward the continuation of life-changing experiences for community members of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and interests to be involved in. By actively engaging in interactive workshops, chat backs with touring professional cast members, performances and more, people have the opportunity to enhance their understanding of and appreciation for the arts, as well as their own lives.

Thank you to all who celebrated with us, illustrating that your Fox Cities P.A.C. is a multicultural gathering place for all. A special thank you to the Presenting, Supportive and Creative Partners, as well as the many individuals who helped bring The Gala to life in the 2022-23 Season. We appreciate your help in supporting this Fox Cities nonprofit organization Where the Arts Come Alive!
