VIP COCKTAILS + GALA

Purchase your tickets!

Starting at 6:30 PM, our limited-access Virtual VIP Cocktails will feature an exclusive, interactive conversation between honorees Barbara Tober and Deborah Czeresko moderated by a very special guest, where guests can enjoy a snack and specialty cocktail in a hand blown glass from our House Party Box. 

The inimitable and hilarious performance artist Grace Whiteside will host the Virtual Gala + Auction at 7 PM with co-chairs Kiki Smith and Margaret Rose Vendryes, leading us through an evening with exciting guest appearances from Board Chair, Katya Heller, Leslie Jackson Chihuly, Beth Lipman, and Cynthia Manocherian.

If you are unable to attend, we hope you will make a much-appreciated donation in Barbara and Deborah's honor! Click here to make your donation at any level.
