Town Hall Gala 2023
Celebrating Town Hall & Passing the Mic

The 2022-23 season has been significant for Town Hall, with a major leadership transition as well as the excitement of reigniting our full building with programming across every stage. In December, we said our goodbyes to Wier Harman after 17 years of service, and we’re preparing to welcome our new Executive Director with this celebration. It’s the first in-person gala since February 2020, if you can believe it! 

With the words “please welcome…” our staff has passed the mic almost 4,000 times over the last 20 years. Passing the mic is our way of saying, “We’re glad you’re here, and we’re ready to listen.” We’d be honored if you joined us to celebrate Town Hall’s mission and all that our future holds. 

The Gala is Town Hall’s key fundraising event of the year, with proceeds directly supporting our year-round programming and sliding scale ticket model starting at just $5. A successful Gala ensures our commitment to maximize accessibility, including our policy of free tickets for everyone 22 & Under. Our goal this year is to raise $350,000, and we hope you’ll consider helping us by showing up and/or raising your paddle.


Ticket Price: $350

Table Price: $2,800

Gala tickets include appetizers, beverages, dinner, special programming with local luminaries, tickets to the 8:30pm benefit event in The Great Hall, and a copy of Lane Moore’s new book, You Will Find Your People.
