Step out for a night on the town at the Arts Council of York County’s annual fundraising gala, An Evening of Radiance at 7:30 PM on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at the City Club of Rock Hill, 140 East Main Street.
Elizabeth Taylor, the queen of Hollywood once said, “You cannot possess radiance, you can only admire it.” Inspired by Pantone®’s Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid, we are celebrating the creativity and elegance evoked by the hue. Get in touch with your glamorous side at the Arts Council’s annual gala! Slick your hair into a pompadour or tease your mane sky high into a sophisticated bouffant. Accent your favorite suit with a radiant orchid boutonnière, or grab your favorite lavender clutch and you’re ready to hit the town. When you cross the threshold, you’ll be transported onto the red carpet of a Hollywood press line. As you walk the line, we’ll try to hold the paparazzi at bay.
Inside the City Club, jazz musician, Leslie Thompson Richardson, will captivate guests. and DJ Chris Roland will be keeping the energy high as he spins your favorite dance tunes. Catch your breath while enjoying a drink from the open bar and heavy hors d'oeuvres, then stop by the tables to bid on your favorite items in our silent auction. This year’s auction includes vacation packages and original art by local and regional artists such as Harriet Goode and Bob Doster.
All proceeds benefit arts programming in York County, including arts in education and community engagement programs, Small Grants to individual artists, arts organizations and schools, the Arts Council’s Main Stage Performing Arts Series, Blues & Jazz Festival, Underexposed Film Festival YC, and exhibits in the galleries at the Center for the Arts.
