The Holiday Gala will be at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet on Saturday, December 22nd from 4pm- 7:30pm and will be the grandest gala Artists’ Exchange has put on to date. The gala will take over the entire ballroom at Rhodes so there will be plenty of room and a private table for each party of ten. The gala ticket, which includes a ticket to the 8pm performance of A Christmas Carol at the Park Theatre, includes appetizers from local restaurants, a catered dinner of pear salad, pan seared peppered salmon with chimichurri sauce, raspberry chicken and sauteed squash with green apples and raisins, fancy desserts, coffee and tea station, an open wine and craft beer bar and a silent auction. The staff at Rhodes will provide multiple food stations which will eliminate long lines. Festive holiday trolleys will be available for guests, for transport to the gala (from the Park Theatre) and back to the Park Theatre for the 8pm show. Jazz piano player Marc Tabor will light up the lobby and the SOS Big Band of RI will liven up the ballroom with sounds of swing, bounce and jazz. The dance floor will be open throughout dinner and we have even added a fashion show.The crew from the Rapscallion Brewery will once again come down from Massachusetts to pour their delicious craft beer for the gala guests. And the silent auction will offer over 100 auction items as well as many original art pieces. It is sure to be an amazing night! And a fantastic value! Hope you will consider inviting a few of your friends this year and purchase a table of 10.
Tickets to the Holiday Gala are $750 for a table of 10 or $1000 for a sponsorship table, which includes advertising in the playbill, sponsorship reel and Artists’ Exchange website. Only 40 tables will be sold for the gala. The gala will begin at 4:00pm and continue festivities until 7:30pm.
