The East Bay Center for the Performing Arts is emerging from a three year pandemic party pause to host its 13th Annual Fall Gala in-person at its Richmond home Oct. 28 at 6 p.m. Dinner will be served and performances and stories will be shared, per the center.

The Fall Gala is the center’s largest fundraiser of the year and is a chance to come together in support of its mission to engage and inspire its students as artists and leaders, organizers said on its event page.

“We look forward to a captivating evening of performances and stories, raising critical support for our programs, and celebrating the creativity, strength and beauty of our young artists and our community,” stated the center.

The center said that funding raised at its Fall Gala will support its more than 60 faculty artists in offering a world-class curriculum, strengthen its partnerships with Richmond schools, expand its work with more than 3,700 students who participate in its tuition-free programs, and uplift young artists as they pursue higher education and beyond.

Tickets to the Fall Gala range from $250 for a general admission ticket, to $500 for a VIP ticket with preferred seating, to $2,500 for a table of eight guests.

The center is located at 339 11th St. in Richmond. To purchase tickets, click here. Learn more about the Fall Gala here.
