5:30 pm – no host cocktails & mini-auction
6:30 pm – 10 course tasting menu
at Virgil’s at Cimmiyottis

Four years ago, between Gala Auctions, we thought it would be fun to have a casual get-together with our Arts Council members to raise money for the cause and share some great food. It was so successful, it’s become one of our favorite traditions. The PCA staff and board members will cook up their own signature dishes along with special wine and beer tastings. We’ve got a few great auction items and other fun surprises too. It’s a delicious way to connect with others who value the creative energy of our community and support a good cause at the same time.

$40 per person / $75 per couple
