Gala 2023: Celebrating Town Hall & Passing the Mic
Tickets On Sale Now!
Please join us for our annual Gala to pass the mic to our new leader and celebrate the exciting future of Town Hall! In a time when nothing is more important than coming together, we’ll highlight the power of Town Hall’s mission to create accessible space for our patrons and rental partners.
Tickets for most of our programs are available on a sliding scale starting at just $5, and Town Hall’s annual Gala is a big part of keeping it that way. Join us in helping to raise $350,000 to keep fulfilling our mission. Your Gala ticket purchase and raise the paddle support are vital components of keeping Town Hall accessible.
5:00pm Cocktail Hour: Hors d’oeuvres, beverages, and games enjoyed on the lobby level.
6:00pm Dinner & Support: Meet our new Executive Director and enjoy a program with local luminaries. Plus, you’ll savor a meal prepared by Chef John Sundstrom of Lark, while raising your glass and paddle in The Wyncote Foundation NW Forum.
