Hoping to show that the community really does have a heart — just like the Tin Man — Center Place Fine Arts holds its 30th annual Patron Party April 12.
The organization's gala will feature a Wizard of Oz theme, celebrating the motion picture's 75th anniversary. Revelers can follow the yellow brick road by dressing in an Oz-themed outfit or casual wear. Doors open at 7 p.m. with a VIP party at 6 p.m.
Attendees will enjoy catering from the "Emerald City," a complimentary full premium bar and free valet parking. Big Beats Entertainment will provide dance music and the event also will include a silent auction. Members will present the Patricia Odiorne Scholarship Award.
Tickets and sponsorship packages range from $100 to $1,000.
Established in 1976, Center Place, 619 Vonderburg Drive, Suite B, promotes the fine arts and civic involvement with programs for all ages, including original art exhibits, art education and the performing arts.
