Framing the Future Gala
Join more than 450 guests for a virtual community celebration of the Arts! 2020
Framing the Future Gala Friday, May 15, 2020
The online auction will be open from Friday, May 8th at 5pm to Friday May 15 at 8pm.
The annual Framing the Future Gala, now in its 16th year, is the school’s largest fundraiser that typically brings in over $140,000 to support the Arts Program. Although we are not able to celebrate in person, we look forward to our first ever virtual gala on Friday, May 15th.
The auction will take place online only. Auction items will be posted online at Greater Giving, where you can browse more than 100 items and experiences. The auction will be open for bidding from Friday, May 8th through Friday, May 15th. We will email a look-book with photos of the items up for bid in the coming weeks. We have received a number of truly special items from our generous donors. A few highlights include free kids’ meals for a year at local restaurants, weekend getaways, overnight stays, beach vacations, and fantastic fun-filled Class Baskets
If you previously purchased your Gala ticket(s) you will automatically receive a link via text message and can begin bidding as soon as the auction opens on May 8th. You do not need to purchase anything additional to bid in the auction. You can also purchase a $5 bid-from-afar pass to be able to bid on items if you have not purchased a ticket. Details to come.
Celebrate with us! The online auction will culminate with a virtual celebration that all are invited to attend! We will hold the event live on Zoom. Hosted by our wonderful Two Rivers Executive Director, Jessica Wodatch, together we will toast our arts education-loving community, watch a student performance, have fun prizes, and celebrate.
