Gathering for The Grand 2017

Some Enchanted Evening

Once again, Grand Vision celebrates music, history and our San Pedro community at the 2017 Gathering For The Grand! This year's event will be held on Saturday March 18, 5 PM at Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles. 

This year's event honors Harbor Area arts patrons, Scott Donnelly and Dr Wade Nishimoto. The theme is Some Enchanted Evening (from the film South Pacific) and will feature colorful Tiki decor, cocktails, appetizers, a delicious dinner, a silent and live auction, music and dancing. 

Proceeds help us continue our efforts to restore and maintain our local treasure; the historic Warner Grand Theatre, produce our series of community concerts at the intimate Grand Annex and continue to run MEET THE MUSIC, our free music education program for 4th and 5th grade students in San Pedro and Wilmington public schools.

Recommended attire is elegant cocktail or formal wear with a tropical twist. Entertainment will be by The Anything Grand Band with a special performance by Kelsey McGowen & Company. Kelsey grew up in San Pedro and has become one of Hollywood's leading celebrity tap trainers, privately coaching Bette Midler and Derek Hough and has worked on many films including the current blockbuster La La Land. Kelsey and her company will perform several dance numbers at the Gala.

We invite you to participate by becoming a sponsor, donating an auction item, attending the event or even all three. Don't miss this fabulous night of food, fun and festivities!
