Celebrate the beginning of the holiday season and make a difference with your contribution. Begin in the grand hall and stroll through 5 magical areas on Riverside Theatre’s campus into a world of glittering Christmas trees, holiday lights, joyful music and experience many other enchanting surprises including the Christmas Shoppe and vendor booths. Enjoy live entertainment, a festive cocktail buffet with tempting hors d’oeuvres, and open bar. Plus a special rock’n holiday performance with live entertainment!
The preview gala initiates the silent auction bidding on all of the beautifully decorated trees. This year we are making the bidding process easier by utilizing the technology of BIDPAL®. You’ll be able to set your bids and monitor using your smart phone or kiosks at the event and our staff can assist you as needed.
We look forward to creating a memorable and charming evening for our special festival gala guests. We hope you’ll attend.
