Fundraising Events

Mark your calendars and join us for our 19th Annual Art of Dessert. We are thrilled to be planning an in-person event this year, with the safety and comfort of our guests top priority. Art of Dessert is our biggest fundraising event of the year, and has raised more than $4.5 million over the years to help support our community’s home for the arts and helping provide enrichment in the arts to 480,000+ children.

This beloved and incredibly fun event will feature delicious food, fabulous wine, and, of course, incredible desserts. Guests will enjoy a live auction, engaging entertainment, and so much more.

Stay turned for more information, including how to purchase tickets, participate in our online auction, and other ways to get involved.
