The annual gala, benefiting The Junior League of Stark County, is the single biggest fundraising effort for the organization. �And, yes, it is also a fantastic party,� said Lora Harley, chair for this year�s event, �a party with a mission.� �There is great food, great fun and your support of the event supports our mission�promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving our communities,� she added. The theme this year is old style, Hollywood glamour. It is, �A Red Carpet Gala,� 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. �We are encouraging everyone to find THAT special dress (or suit for the guys) and come ready to �strike a pose,� 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 �walk of fame� featuring delicious confections from some of Stark County�s finest bakers. The main event�the LIVE AUCTION�will take center stage at approximately 8:30 p.m. with seasoned auctioneer Rodney Dimmerling of Dimmerling Realty & Auctioneers.
