“Our annual gala is an important fundraiser for the center — the proceeds allow us to offer year-round performing arts experiences for all in Northern Michigan, including a full season of performances for our region’s youth offered at no cost,” said executive director Matthew Kacergis. “It’s also our biggest performance of the season, with previous years featuring performances by Gladys Knight, the Detroit Symphony, John Fogerty and many others. Chicago has played some of the largest venues in the world and just may be our biggest show yet!”
Tickets for the concert and afterparty are $350, of which $150 is considered a tax-deductible donation. Gala sponsorships are also available for both individuals and corporations starting at $1,500. Sponsorships are on sale now, and tickets will go on sale Feb. 15.
