Once Upon a Dream

The theme of this year's gala is A Fairy Tale Ball. It will be like every fairy tale and princess story you've ever heard, all rolled into one. We encourage you to dress the part! Ladies, find a dress similar to your favorite princess! Gentlemen, the men in fairy tales all have iconic outfits too! Get creative and have fun with it! The gala is black tie optional and we can't wait to see what you come up with! And make sure you bring your dancing shoes, because we are going to have fun music all night and a dance floor front and center!


This year, we will have VIP Happy Hour and a seated dinner, with the usual open bar. Can't make it to dinner? No problem, you can still join in on the fun by purchasing our GA ticket. Arrive at 7:30 and  enjoy the passed apps and an open bar! If you want to have a place to sit while bidding in our silent auction- our "GA reserved seating" is the ticket for you!  


We will still have our annual live and silent auctions, after 7:30pm so everyone can participate, as well as our Wine Pull game and the fabulous Bob Compton on backdrop photobooth!

The Madrid Theatre has 5 free parking lots with attendants at each.

  • VIP doors open at 5pm, dinner is at 6pm.
  • GA doors open at 7:30pm.

There will be lots of sneak peaks of the auction items and elements of the night, so stay tuned!
