Red Carpet Gala
The annual gala, benefiting The Junior League of Stark County, is the single biggest fundraising effort for the organization. âï¿½ï¿½And, yes, it is also a fantastic party,âï¿½ï¿½ said Lora Harley, chair for this yearâï¿½ï¿½s event, âï¿½ï¿½a party with a mission.âï¿½ï¿½ âï¿½ï¿½There is great food, great fun and your support of the event supports our missionâï¿½ï¿½promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving our communities,âï¿½ï¿½ she added. The theme this year is old style, Hollywood glamour. It is, âï¿½ï¿½A Red Carpet Gala,âï¿½ï¿½ Harley said. It will be at the Barrette Center at Walsh University. There will be a silent and live auction, and casino style gambling to round out the night. Tickets are $65 each and that includes dinner and drinks. The doors open at 5:30 p.m. âï¿½ï¿½We are encouraging everyone to find THAT special dress (or suit for the guys) and come ready to âï¿½ï¿½strike a pose,âï¿½ï¿½ Harley said. Dinner starts at 7:00 p.m. with chicken marsala and sweet bourbon salmon in the spotlight. There will also be an open bar complete with a surprise signature drink, and a cookie âï¿½ï¿½walk of fameâï¿½ï¿½ featuring delicious confections from some of Stark Countyâï¿½ï¿½s finest bakers. The main eventâï¿½ï¿½the LIVE AUCTIONâï¿½ï¿½will take center stage at approximately 8:30 p.m. with seasoned auctioneer Rodney Dimmerling of Dimmerling Realty & Auctioneers.
