Get ready to “Party for a Purpose” at the Carson Center’s big annual fundraising event May 7, 2020. This party takes place throughout the Carson Center. Enjoy mixing and mingling with friends old and new as you enjoy a silent auction, live auction, food from local caterers, wine, champagne, specialty bourbon cocktail, coffee, tea, and soft drinks. All beverages and food are included in the cost of admission.
The “Purpose of this Party” is to raise money for the Carson Center, which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit regional performing arts center. Approximately 30% of the center’s annual funding comes from fundraising events, contributions, sponsorships, and grants. When you buy tickets and tables – you support arts-education for children and youth, performances for audiences of all ages, Broadway musicals, big-name concerts, and other performing artists and theatre groups from across our nation and around the world. Fundraising events and contributions help us to involve more schools and families from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds. Most of the ticket/table cost is tax-deductible as a contribution to the Carson Center as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit performing arts center.
