25th Anniversary Gala
A benefit for the Straz Center
Celebrating 25 extraordinary years of world-class entertainment and arts education, the 25th Anniversary Gala is the place to be on Saturday, December 1.
In 1987, the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center opened as an arts magnet, a community gathering place and an economic catalyst. Since then, more than 12 million patrons, hundreds of thousands of students and thousands of performers have passed through our doors.
This very special and exciting night is an opportunity for you and your guests to join fellow community leaders and arts patrons as we look back at our rich history, create exciting new memories and launch our next 25 years.
The Anniversary Gala will be an unforgettable event featuring a lavish dinner, live auction, premier seating for a stellar performance by Broadway star Idina Menzel (from the original cast of Wicked) and late-night festivities.
Tickets prices start at $650 and include premier seating to the Idina Menzel concert. Sponsorship opportunities begin at $7,500.
