6th Annual Harvest Gala - November 21
The Leadership Center is hosting their Harvest Gala on November 21, 2020! It is a beautiful event where they not only raise funds but we have fun!
"Join us for our favorite night of the year! The Harvest Gala will feature delicious food, some grown right here at The Leadership Center. Attendees will be treated to wine from James Arthur Vineyards and beer from Prairie Pride Brewery. We will also have the musical stylings of Mojo Filter!
The evening begins with incredible hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar provided by both James Arthur Vineyards & Prairie Pride Brewery. The Silent Auction will also take place during this time.
Dinner will be served at 7:15. Tables will have selection of beer & wines that complement the meal. This multi-course meal will be served by our wonderful and talented Aurora NHS Volunteers.
After dinner, we'll have a lively dessert auction! It's a perfect way to score amazing cakes and pies from some of our favorite vendors including the executive director's mom, Karen! Last year her turtle cheese cake when for over $350! The desserts can be boxed up to take home for the upcoming holiday season or plated for your table. Then follows a live auction!
We conclude the evening with live music from Mojo Filter and dancing.
**Due to Covid, we also have a to-go option for those of you who want to support us but do not feel comfortable attending in person!
**NEW THIS YEAR** We are offering parents who want to attend an opportunity to bring the kiddos! We have partnered with the Edgerton Explorit Center with the help of Aurora NHS and their Edgerton on the Move program. While parents enjoy a wonderful fancy event, the kids get to play, run, do activities and enjoy pizza and decorate your own cupcakes in the gym. Tickets can be purchased at the same time as your gala tickets.
All in all, it will be a fabulous night of fun and fundraising for all!
*****Should Covid-19 and Direct Health Mandates (DHM) force us to change the nature of this event or cancel it, we will be in contact with all ticket holders and sponsors. We will adhere to any DHMs that are in place. Tables will be social distant. The meal is plated and served. Masks will be available for those who wish to wear them, but they will not be manditory. We fully understand if the current times make it unable for you to attend. We do hope you'll consider donating then as fundraising this year is more critical then ever given the impact to our business and offerings due to the pandemic. Thank you.*****
