Private Donor Events

Long Center’s Anniversary Gala

Hosted annually, the Long Center’s Anniversary Party proves to be one of the highlights of the spring social season in Austin. This event is a celebration of the Long Center, as well as our single largest fundraising event of the year. Proceeds from the Anniversary Gala benefit our education and outreach programs, enabling us to bring the magic and wonder of the performing arts to thousands of children and adults each year. VIP tickets include valet parking, seated dinner, live and silent auction, hosted bar service and a stunning party at the Long Center.
