Art Auction & Gala Share Tweet

    Join us for a final toast to the first half century at The Center. Celebrate with friends dressed in black tie, enjoy delicious food and drink, bid on select works of art, trips, tours, and experiences in the Silent and Live Auctions. Commemorate the retirement of our executive director Anthony Bannon, and share in the excitement as we look forward to the next fifty years. 

    Presented by Paula Joy & John Reinhold and the Joy Family Foundation, with the Board of Trustees, Advisory Council, and staff of the Burchfield Penney.
