THE GATHERING FOR THE GRAND GALA
SATURDAY, APRIL 25, 2020
 
at the PALOS VERDES GOLF CLUB
Celebrating the Classic Film, "GREASE" 
 
 

San Pedro, CA (04/25/20)―Grand Vision Foundation presents the eleventh annual Gathering for the Grand on Saturday, April 25, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.  The annual character-themed gala raises critical funds for ongoing restoration of the historic Warner Grand Theatre, the cultural hub of the area’s economic revitalization, as well as youth music programs for underserved youth in San Pedro and Wilmington.

This year, the event is taking its inspiration from the contemporary 1950s teen-age musical “Grease” starring John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John and Stockard Channing. Guests are encouraged to dress in 1950s cocktail attire, pink ladies or greaser style; black tie is optional.

“We're grateful to everyone who shares our grand vision: revitalizing our community through the arts, saving the Warner Grand Theatre, and teaching music to our most disadvantaged youth,” Liz Schindler-Johnson, Executive Director of Grand Vision Foundation.

After a hiatus in 2019, Gathering for the Grand will return to the Palos Verdes Golf Club. Proceeds from the dinner will benefit Grand Vision's Love the Lobby Campaign to restore the Warner Grand Theatre's main lobby and also supports Grand Vision’s Meet the Music program, which serves over 1,600 local elementary students.

Each year, Grand Vision Foundation honors a community leader who actively supports community revitalization through the arts. This year’s honoree, Gary Bettis and Bettis Insurance, has been a supporter for over two decades.

The annual event includes a generous dinner, live music and dancing, and exciting Silent and Live auctions. Tickets are $180 before December 6 and $190 after. Glamorous 1950s fashion attire is encouraged. Tickets can be purchased online HERE or by calling the Grand Vision office at 310-833-4813. Sponsorship and advertising opportunities are also available, call Liz for sponsorship information.
