Expect the Unexpected at Beck's Spotlight Gala

Beck Center for the Arts will celebrate its 82nd anniversary while raising vital funds with its 2015 Spotlight gala. In its third year, the benefit will take place on Saturday, October 24, from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.  For the first time, Spotlight will venture from the Beck Center campus to Hyland, creator of OnBase – Building 3 at 28105 Clemens Road in Westlake. All proceeds benefit Beck Center’s programming and its student financial assistance program.

The event, led by Chairperson Mary Anne Crampton, is introducing many innovative changes and guests are encouraged to expect the unexpected! The evening will start with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and an array of silent auction items with mobile bidding. The dinner will be prepared by renowned Chef Chris Hodgson and the Driftwood Restaurant Group.

Beck Center’s spotlight will shine on honoree First Federal Lakewood for its exemplary community engagement efforts and region-wide support of the arts. Inventive performances by Beck Center artists will take place throughout the evening, as well as a live auction with items such as a Sedona vacation, a week in Deer Valley, Utah, and a trip to Wente Vineyard Winery in California.

While the Spotlight dinner and program are sold out, tickets remain for the Spotlight After Party, which takes place at Hyland from 9:30 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. This is a festive way to support Beck Center while enjoying delicious finger foods, an open bar, and music and dancing by “Best of Cleveland 2013” DJ Donkis. Tickets for the After Party are $50 per person and are on sale at beckcenter.org.
