Let’s get this party started. Reserve Gala tickets today.

HEART OF BALDWIN LOGOFriday night at the Lafayette Grande, good food from great restaurants, beer and wine, a flip book photo booth, a Kentucky Derby theme with extravagant hats, a live horse for equine selfies, mint juleps and bourbon tasting, music and dancing, and a live auction with more than 40 items.  If it sounds like a party, that’s because it IS a party and the proceeds support the Baldwin Center.   Good Fun and a Great Cause.  Unlike Saturday’s horse race, that’s a WIN-WIN.  Follow instructions on this web page to reserve your tickets, because it won’t be a party without you.  If you don’t come, you’ll miss all the fun…and we’ll miss YOU!

All new GALA 2016

electronic invitation.Gala2016.pictureCome celebrate with us!

Gala 2016 has a new vibe.  The theme is borrowed from a long-standing American tradition, the Kentucky Derby.  We’ve even got a horse, so you can take selfies with Top Hat Fiduciary.   As a nod to “the most exciting two minutes in sports”, we invite you to bring your spirit of fun and adventure, wear your best hat (if you wish), and be prepared to mingle and dance in the historic and charming setting of the Lafayette Grande.

Enjoy good food and experience mint juleps and bourbon tasting at the cash bar.  Tickets are only $65. Come to bid on the cool stuff in the silent auction, entertain yourself and your friends in the flip book photo booth, and celebrate the people and organizations who are the Heart of Baldwin.
