HPAAC Six Annual Fundraising Gala EVE

Are you ready to start your holiday shopping?

Time to raid your piggy bank and grab some cash for the great entertainment raffle and join in the fun of the Head or Tails game.

Let’s enjoy great music by the Hastings Jazz Ensemble 1, Vocal Jazz, and Prescott Acapella while we search for great finds in the silent auction. Enjoy the bidding fun with professional Auctioneer Erich Gabriel. Let’s fundraise for Summer Arts Programs for Kids, scholarships and student fees for children and adults who otherwise would not be able to participate in arts programs.

Your emcees Libby & David Wasylik will lead thru the evening’s program as we honor the 2017 Art Honorees. Debbie and Allen Saunders of Hastings and Judy Johnson of Prescott will be honored for their tireless efforts to promote the arts in their respective communities.
