This upcoming year marks our 11th annual Gathering for the Grand Gala Fundraiser, celebrating art, inspiration and education. This year, the event is taking its inspiration from the contemporary 1950s teen-age musical fantasy “Grease” starring John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John and Stockard Channing and will be held at the Palos Verdes Golf Club at 3301 Vía Campesina, Palos Verdes Estates, CA and feature a cocktail reception, an extensive silent auction, an elegant dinner, live entertainment, dancing and engaging speakers and guests.

Our annual Gala is high-energy and lots of fun, bringing together members of the San Pedro community. This year GVF will honor Gary Bettis and Bettis Insurance, who has been a long-term supporter of GVF since the early days of its inception.

Guests are encouraged to dress in 1950s cocktail attire, pink ladies or greaser fashion; black tie is optional. Advanced payment and RSVP required.

The proceeds from this event allow Grand Vision to continue to preserve and promote the historic Warner Grand Theatre; to present high quality live music at the Grand Annex; and to instill Wilmington and San Pedro school children, with a love and knowledge of music through our Meet the Music program. To date, this program has served over 10,500 students in our local schools.
