“Leap Year Gala” 2020 Auction hosted by Dance Theatre Northwest will be held Saturday, February 29, 2020, starting at 5:30 p.m., at the University Place Civic Library Atrium 3609 Market Place West in University Place, WA. Enjoy wine and refreshments while live and silent auctions take place along with live entertainment, raffles and door prizes.
Tickets are still available through www.DTNW.org.
Leap Year Gala is a vital fundraising event to help support programs and equipment so our local 501-c-3 nonprofit organization can continue a 32 year tradition of providing Free dance performances and dance education as part of its community service outreach. Many fabulous experiences and items will be offered including a Holland America Cruise to Alaska, resort vacations, and an African Safari.
Your support is needed because without needed funds DTNW will be unable to continue providing many of its ongoing programs. We are also still seeking auction items both live and silent, gift certificates, services and goods, and gift cards. We invite you to donate an item this year to support the arts and to attend the auction party. Dance Theatre Northwest is a non-profit organization with a 501 c 3 exempt status. Donations of any size are greatly appreciated
